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

A golden hue with brilliant edges. Very fine bead. Fine and expressive aromas on the nose, which shows fully ripe stone fruit alongside dried fruit. Quite full-bodied on the palate, with flavors of pears and sun-ripened apricots. Richly expressive and pleasantly soft.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Brut is a polished, elegant wine with an expansive core of ripe apricots, minerals and smoke that emerge from its medium-bodied frame. Here, too, there is a gorgeous combination of clarity and richness in the fruit. The 2002 Brut is 60% Pinot Noir, with 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Meunier. This is a terrific effort from Deutz. This is LA106000467, disgorged February, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012."
91 Points

"A firm, vibrant style, whose tightly wound lemon, graphite and apple flavors are stingy now. Turns lean and austere on the finish, then returns with a vanilla accent. Be patient with this. Best from 2010 through 2027. 90 cases imported."

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...

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
