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

Chateau Gautoul is a deeply colored, generous wine with ripe tannins and ample body. Its accessible flavors of cassis, blackberry, truffles and spice make it a great expression of its unique and venerable appellation.

Critical Acclaim

"Impressive wine, perfectly balancing its tannins and its stylish medicinal and herbal fruit flavors. It’s juicy, with mouthfilling black currant flavors. A wine to age for several years, but likely to be drinkable, with softer tannins, in 2012."
