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

"It is the elegance, finesse and complexity of its wines that sets Burgundy apart. My aim is to try to preserve this unique fruit and sensuality in my wines."
-Jacques Seysses, owner/winemaker

A good bottle should be a celebration. To bring out the best in our red wines, we recommend serving them at a temperature of 15-16°C (59-61°F). It is often worth decanting young Burgundies just before the meal, but we do not think it is advisable for vintages over ten years old. Please be careful, while a little oxygen helps the wine to open up, too much exposure can damage it. We hope that our greatest years will age for thirty or so years, but we don't believe in aging for aging sake!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Charmes-Chambertin comes across as rich, opulent and totally intense in its dark, jammy fruit. The fruit was destemmed 60-70%, making it one of the wines with the lowest amount of whole clusters. The Charmes stands apart from most of the wines in the lineup for its boisterous personality. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. 90-92 Points"
92 Points

"A cool, airy, pure and restrained nose that is very Gevrey in character offers up attractively fresh aromas of red and dark berry fruit plus a hint of the sauvage that precede the rich and complex middle weight flavors that culminate in a mildly austere but long finish. This is really quite good and worth a look. 88-91 Points"
91 Points

"Medium red. Red berry aromas lifted by flowers and minerals; this boasts more pinot tang than the Morey or Chambolle cuvee Supple, rich and spicy in the mouth, with pretty red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Vinified with little in the way of stems, this wine should offer early pleasure. 88-90 Points"
