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 2009 vintage in Chablis continued the string of excellent vintages in the region, with a hot, dry summmer perfectly ripening the fruit for harvest. The 2009 Chablis AC is a classically styled Chablis; medium in body, ripe with mineral, bright fruit, salty "sea-air" saline and firm acidity on the finish.

The versatile, affordable, village Chablis from Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils is bright and crisp, with the classic, taut structure and refreshing minerality that define traditional Chablis. This is a Moreau classic.

Critical Acclaim

"Light scents of lemon and orange meet an equally light hint of lees in this delicately flavored, mouthwatering Chablis. The flavors are more apparent in the persistent finish, where the wine feels crisp and elegant. Decant it for Dover sole."
89 Points

"A green fruit and tidal pool nose also evidences a hint of grassiness that can also be found on the fresh, intense and punchy middle weight flavors that display a hint of minerality on the saline and tension suffused finish. This is excellent and while a bit riper than the '08 version, is still very much Chablis in character."
89 Points

"Ripe, sporting floral and citrus aromas and flavors, this open-textured white ends with a hint of mineral. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported. "

Learn About Chablis

Chablis got a bad rap when its name was plastered on large jug wines in the 1980's and 90's. Luckily, the wine in those jugs has nothing in common with the actual region. Wines produced in Chablis are some of the most unique in the world. Typical descriptors of a classic Chablis include a greenish tinge on the wine, minerality and crisp acidity balanced by a round mouthfeel....
