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

A sizable 40% of the final blend is aged in oak cask, although only a small percentage is new barrels. The oak contact is unobtrusive and is a testament to the sheer power of this Grand Cru.

100% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

"Almost invisible wood influence allows the white flower, spiced pear, sea breeze and citrus-infused aromas to shine. The rich, full and serious flavors possess excellent concentration as well as ample amounts of Les Clos' hallmark minerality on the detailed, energetic and explosive finish. This harmonious beauty remains relatively understated in the context of the most powerful appellation in Chablis."
93 Points

"Full lemon-yellow color. Rather cool aromas of dusty stone, lemon and ginger. Juicier and firmer in the mouth than the more massive Valmur, with a light dusting of minerals lifted by lovely floral and spice perfume. The tight, dry, slowly building finish features very good grip and considerable class."
92 Points

"Ripe and juicy, with orange, apricot and melon flavors on a creamy texture. On the soft side, yet not heavy or dull, with a long, citrus-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2019. 400 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....
