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

The Côtes du Rhône Rosé is an excellent example of the appellation. Produced by saigné from Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault, this dry rosé is fruity and rich with an intriguing and appetizing bitterness on the finish. There are no better wines to drink with informal buffets, summer outdoor meals, and spicy foods.

Blend: 50%f Grenach, 40% Cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre, and 5% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"Guigal’s roses are also very strong efforts, but they tend to disappear from retailers’ shelves as quickly as they are released. The 2010 Cotes du Rhone Rose exhibits copious aromas of strawberries and cherries, a medium pink color, crisp acids and an elegant, mineral-like character."
89 Points

"Dark pink. Pungent red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by dried herb and licorice nuances. Fleshy and broad, with good depth to its bitter cherry and anise flavors. A rich, chewy style of pink wine that's clearly built for food. Closes with solid grip and good length, the anise note repeating."
88 Points

"Firm and focused, with pomegranate and cherry notes backed by a hint of tobacco on the juicy finish. Drink now."

He made wine for over 67 vintages and, at the beginning of his...

Rose(roe-ZAY) A Rose by Any Other Name Technically, a rose is an unfinished red wine, but the term seems so- secondary.
