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

Chateau Lafleur-Gazin generally has a deep color, vivid nose and good texture backed by a firm tannic structure. A few years of cellaring will ensure full enjoyment.

Critical Acclaim

"This 21-acre property has been owned by the Deflour-Borderie family for three generations and farmed by Jean-Pierre Moueix's firm since 1976. The wine is blended from merlot (80 percent of the property, planted on gravel and clay) and cabernet franc (on the siltier soils). This 2008 is reticent, old-fashioned Pomerol, fragrant with red fruit and light, mineral-inflected tannins. The supple texture makes it accessible now, delicious with thin slices of seared margret de canard"
