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

This is becoming very fine, and watch out; it's entirely different from its old apples-and-butter form, more oystery and chalky and ginger and talc, with the apple-butter thing skulking in the mid-palate. It's racy, on the tensile side. I'd be a lot happier with three more grams of rs, but you won't agree if you prefer a vigorously dry Champagne.

Critical Acclaim

"This is quite firm and focused, offering a lively bead and flavors of lemon zest, fresh quince, anise and poached pear. Hints of vanilla and pastry linger on the chalky finish."
90 Points

"Light yellow-gold. Ripe melon and pear aromas are given depth by suggestions of dried fig, redcurrant and pungent flowers. Chewy orchard fruit flavors show good concentration and spicy character, with a hint of licorice emerging with air. The broad, clinging finish leaves lasting notes of sappy pear and chamomile. I like this Champagne's blend of richness and energy."

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...
