Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Thomas Labille Chablis is a white wine from the Chablis subregion, which is the northernmost part of the famous French wine region of Burgundy. The wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in vinyards across the region. Chablis is notable for its cool, continental climate, which result in a wine with predominantly citric fruit expreesion and mouthwatering acidity. The local soils have a high level of limestone that is rich in sea fossils, which together result in the wine exhibiting a mineral complexity on the finish. The wine is made in traditional style with temperature controlled fermentation in neutral vessels to preserve the purity of its fruit expression, followed by aging in old oak barrels for more than a year to develop a broader, textural, mouthfeel. This wine's acidity makes it a food friendly style for lighter dishes involving white meats and seafood.
