  • 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

#76 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

With aromas of seashells, citrus and white peach blossom, this shows how low yields bring out the best of Vouvray which is beyond question the best of Touraine. Chenin Blanc as a variety can offer up myriad scents and tastes but Pichot shows its playful, sprightly side. With a clean, bright, polished peach and taut mouthwatering mineral on the palate, it is round in the mouth and charms you with an everlasting aroma of white peach on the polished finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Off-dry and flattering, with tasty quince, fig and pear flavors backed by a lilting flroal note on the lively finish. Drink now through 2012. 8,000 cases imported. "

Learn About Domaine Pichot

Jean-Claude Pichot’s family is one of the oldest in Vouvray, with origins as viticulturists and resturateurs dating back to 1739. The family cellars are located in the charming village of Vouvray, in caverns hewn from the rolling hills which were once quarried to provide stone to construct the grand châteaux of the Loire. In fact, the Pichot home is itself part house and part cavern, with a dramatic hearth carved from the rock. Jean- Claude was one of six sons, but the only one to continue the family tradition of vigneron.
