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 deeply colored, full-bodied wine of depth and intensity with rich white fruit and toasted hazelnut aromas and flavors and a persistent, earthy finish.

An excellent companion to fish, shellfish, veal and poultry, especially in cream sauces. This wine can be enjoyed immediately or within five to eight years of the vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Not surprisingly, here the nose is completely different with a very ripe nose of resin, yellow orchard fruit and earth nuances that is trimmed in a light touch of wood before exposing rich, delicious, powerful and mouth coating flavors that offer impressive depth and length for a villages level wine. This is well worth a look. Comments: Outstanding 89-91"
91 Points

"The 2009 Chassagne-Montrachet caresses the palate with rich, sumptuous fruit. This textured, generous white captures the essence of Chassagne in 2009. Medium to full in body, it shows superb balance and plenty of class at this level. Approximately 15% of the fruit is premier cru."
