  • 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 wine's aromatic intensity expresses the typical characteristics of a fine Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc. Rigorous fruit selection results in an extensive array of aromas, ranging from a hint of box, through a rich palette of citrus fruits, finishing on delicate, tropical notes reminiscent of passion fruit. This concentration of aromas is underpinned on the palate by the magnificent harmony of the wine's fleshy character and refreshing liveliness. Aromatics, richness and length characterise the Dourthe La Grande Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc.

Critical Acclaim

"Already bottled, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc represents a half million bottles, but the wine is very well made with crisp, melony, lemon zest notes. Drink immediately."
88 Points

"Packed with great Sauvignon Blanc herbal flavors, this is a delicious wine, at the cool end of the spectrum of white wine. Grapefruit and lemon juice are enlivened by a grassy texture and crisp, fresh acidity."
