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

As its name suggests, La Grande Année Rosé is a variant of La Grande Année. The blend is created by combining La Grande Année with red wine from "La Côte aux Enfants," a vineyard less than 1.5 acres in size, in the heart of Champagne's Aÿ terroir. La Grande Année Rosé is named after the plot of land it comes from and is made in a true burgundian style. This wine is not produced every year, as perfect maturity is required at the date of harvest. Thus, La Grande Année Rosé remains an exception; it is a beautifully structured and full-bodied wine, with a deep color and intense aroma.

Ruby red. Intense wild red berries with biscuits.

Full-bodied fruit flavors with a long structured finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Huge, intense aromas of orange cream, baked cherry, Sherry, bread dough, cinnamon and lots of other brown spices show remarkable harmony amid such diversity. Beautifully balanced, weighty flavors of dried orange peel, apricot, Sherry, malt and nutmeg. Doughy notes soften the otherwise crisp close."
97 Points

"Detailed flavors of dried berry, tobacco and spice complement the vibrant structure in this Champagne. It shows finesse and persis­tence, with a silky mousse. The aftertaste hints at toast and spice. Drink now through 2020."
92 Points

"The salmon-colored 1999 La Grande Année Rosé is a pretty Champagne that offers terrific balance in its expansive, sweet core of fruit and expressive aromatics. The warm, opulent quality of the vintage comes through in the wine's soft, caressing texture. "

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
