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

Intense color, varying between deep garnet and dark ruby. This Moulin-a-Vent is suggestive of both flowers and fruit, particularly violets and cherries. Well-structured with moderate tannins, delicately spiced, it offers complexity and good length, elegance and harmony, power and velvet.

Critical Acclaim

"The Duboeuf 2010 Moulin-a-Vent informs a soothingly, silkenly polished palate with ripe blackberry and plum as well as a mouthwatering savor akin to meaty pan juices. Buddleia-like perfume rises as the wine takes on air, and persists inner-mouth. The fruit's tart edge serves for invigoration while nut oils add a further layer to the sustained finish. This outstanding value ought to drink well for at least 3-4 years – not that one should miss out on experiencing its youth. "

Beautiful nose of wild raspberry, strawberries, stems, and white pepper. Intensely flavored with a high-toned red fruit component. Very smooth and easy drinking, good dose of chalky soil too. Clean, quick finish that works well with the theme of this Beaujolais. QPR winner

Learn About Duboeuf Map ItMap It

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned negociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the King of Beaujolais. Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuisse, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his...

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
