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

The complexity of those 3 soils of La Moynerie blend the spicy taste of flint and the roundness and the persistence of limestone. The particular typicity of that vintage goes very well with fish in sauces, and white meat.

Critical Acclaim

"Quintessential Pouilly-Fume, this shows the girth typical of these clay-heavy soils, along with a salty, smoky flintiness. Zesty flavors of lime peel and jalapeno are pungent yet balanced and harmonious, lingering with intense fragrance."

Style: Light & Crisp
The nose is most engaging; certainly indicative of the terroir. There is this wonderful confluence of lime and chili pepper. The flavors of a juicy lime are first encountered, which quickly gives way to a delicious spiciness that seems to expand the soft palate. The finish; however, is that of a rich loaminess. This wine was enjoyed by all with whom it was shared.
