Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Within the family of Deutz cuvees, the Brut Millesime has an upright character that is both powerful and elegant. The color is bright and the bubbles are persistent. The entry is clear-cut and stylish, with the palate then showing flavors of fruit, flowers, spices and mild tobacco. It is well built and beautifully balanced.
"The 2006 vintage in Champagne has abundant charm and ripeness, thanks to a warm summer that suited Pinot Noir. In most good wines, there may be a slight lack of acidity, but it's often compensated for by partly avoiding the pack for its gentle, fresh aromatic character, a fine-drawn structure and a minerality that comes from balancing grand cru Chardonnay to energize the Pinot in the blend. A great wine for luxurious sauced shellfish such as lobster, or roast turbot with grilled mushrooms."
"This is a wine that balances maturity with a light, fresh style. It’s elegant and immediately attractive with a straight line of acidity cutting through the apple and lemon flavors. It is ready to drink now, but likely to improve for several more years. Drink through 2020."
"A smoky, minerally undertow supports the flavors of black currant, kumquat, honey, toasted brioche and baked apple in this firm version, with an intense and lively bead. Best from 2015 through 2026. 500 cases imported."
"The 2006 Brut Rosé is a gorgeous wine endowed with an expressive bouquet suggestive of roses, spices, minerals and crushed berries. It possesses wonderful richness, depth and clarity in a cool, beguiling style. The Brut Rosé can be enjoyed today, although I am very curious to see how it develops in the coming years. It is a huge over-achiever in its price range. The 2006 Brut Rosé is mostly Pinot Noir, of which 8% still wine, plus a dash of Chardonnay, from the villages of Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay and Ambonnay. It is a very serious rosé from Deutz. This is Lot: LR110D08810, disgorged March 29th, 2010. "

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...
