Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The Cuvée Signature range is a selection of reputed villages, Premier and Grand Crus from Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune principally. Harvested, they are produced in very limited quantities.

The regional appellation is harvested throughout the village of Santenay, covering approximately 379 hectares. 124 of those hectares are classified as Premier Cru and 10% as white only. The parcel "Clos de Rousseau" covers 15.95 hectares.

Deep red in colour. A nose redolent of nuts such as almond and hazelnut. Its tannic structure lends power and harmonize with flavours of violet and forest undergrowth. The finish is long and the wine may be cellared for several years.

When Michel Bouchard founded his wine merchant business in Beaune in 1750 with his elder son, he wanted to settle in the heart of Burgundy and its vines. Being close to the vine-growers, he created a unique expertise in selection, wine making and aging with one mission:

Always search for perfection in quality, authenticity in style and prestige in the name.

For over two centuries, this has been the vision of the House of Bouchard Ainé & Fils.
