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 Chantegrive Blanc 2007 is a very pretty, Sauvignon Blanc dominated blend (a little Sémillon brings a touch of weight to the texture). This piquant, floral and citrus-y white will provide a perfectly refreshing summer drink, or an excellent accompaniment to grilled, meaty fish such as Sea Bass or Monkfish.

Critical Acclaim

"A leading estate in the southern Graves region, Chantegrive has produced a relatively rich 2007 white, its creamy texture given an edge by apple skin tannins, but still full, open, already generous to drink. There is a great layer of fresh pear juice, which blends well with lime acidity for a final burst of crispness. "

In 1966 Henri and Françoise Lévêque acquired a few plots of vines in the commune of Podensac. After 40 years patiently adding more plots, Château de Chantegrive is today one of the largest and most prestigious estates in the Graves appellation with 240 acres of vines. It is a member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.

A new generation has now arrived and with its energy and committed involvement within the winegrowing world, has injected renewed impetus into the estate.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
