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

Abundant grapefruit on the nose and also on the palate. White chocolate and powdered sugar flavors, along with tropical banana elements. There is caramelized butter and lemon zest on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Good pale yellow. Ripe aromas of peach, fresh apricot and hazelnut; a quintessence of Meursault. Rich, ripe and sweet but framed and energized by a stony mineral underpinning, strong spice notes and a flavor of underripe pineapple. The building, palate-staining finish displays excellent structure and verve."
93 Points

"A lush, buttery white, intense and focused, with ripe apple, grapefruit, butterscotch and spice aromas and flavors coursing throughout. Balanced, this persists with a lengthy finish of citrus and stone."
92 Points

"Smoke, slate, super-ripe apricots and butter are some of the many notes that are woven together in the 2010 Meursault Charmes. A generous, large-scaled wine, the Charmes flows with tons of textural richness and body all the way through to the seamless finish. The Charmes is easily one of the more intense wines in the lineup."
92 Points

"This is a very ripe 2010 with a mix of both yellow and white orchard fruit aromas, mango and floral nuances plus a hint of honey. There is excellent richness and volume to the delicious flavors that enjoy a seductive texture thanks to the abundance of dry extract. I very much like the mouth feel and the natural sweetness of the mid-palate is nicely buffered by the distinct citrus character of the balanced and lingering finish. Lovely if a bit riper than usual."
