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

Les Blanchots Dessous is located just south and adjacent to the Grand Cru Criots Batard Montrachet and shares many of its qualities. Limestone rocks sit atop a clay soil and limestone bedrock providing superb drainage yet rich complex nutrients.

Les Blanchots Dessous possesses a rich and intense depth, with apple, pear, and honey mingling with herbal scents and a focused minerality. Long and powerful, it ages gracefully for 7 to 10 years, developing secondary aromas of earth & truffles.

Critical Acclaim

"Creamy and toasty, offering lime, peach and apple notes tinged by citrus and spice details. Offers a concentrated, almost viscous texture, yet remains balanced and lively, with fine intensity and a long finish that echoes the spice nuances. "
