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

One can easily compare Chiroubles to a superb model elegantly dressed in bright red silk. In taste, it proves to be the most ethereal of Beaujolais wines, all the while proudly bearing the stamp of delectable red berries. It offers the taster the pleasant sensation of gliding over the palate. According to a local poet, infatuated with all that is beautiful in this world, Chiroubles is literally "the extravagance of Beaujolais."

Critical Acclaim

"In part due to hail in this sector, the volume of Duboeuf 2010 Chiroubles is small, but the quality is admirable. Coriander-dusted red currant and red raspberry on the nose carry over onto a bright, juicy, positively tart, buoyant palate. There is a savory underlying sense of meaty pan-drippings that, combined with vivacity of fruit, make for mouthwateringly good value. Duboeuf notes that the individual, grower-specific components of this cuvee were especially disparate in character from one another. They have come together very nicely, then. "

In 1964, Georges realized his...

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
