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

Louis Bernard Cotes du Luberon is light garnet in color with an intense nose of cherry and red berries. On the palate, this wine is fruity and medium-bodied with round soft tannins.

Blend: 65% Grenache, 35% Syrah

Côtes-du-Lubéron became an appellation d'origine contrôlée in 1988. Since then, great improvements have been made in the quality of its wines through rigorous vinyard selection, stringent varietal requirements and lower yields.

Vinyards are located on both southern and northern exposures of calcareous mountains called the "Lubéron". The climate, cooler than that of the Rhône Valley, explains the importance of white wine production in this region (25%).

Peter Mayle's best selling book A Year in Provence has contributed to the popularity of this beautiful region. As a result, Lubéron wines are becoming increasingly sought-after. Its white wines are well-rounded, with a clean, crisp finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and forward, with solid plum and black currant fruit mingling with hints of garrigue and warm stone. Tasty."
