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

A blend with a majority of Chenin Blanc, which gives it an exceptional liveliness for a Southern France wine. A lot of character and intensity thanks to low yields enabling the expression of the terroir.

The wine is redolent of white fruit and citrus fruit enhanced by a nice minerality and a lively touch typical of the terroir. Smooth, ample and persistent in the mouth, with a fresh finish.
Food pairing: Aperitif, shellfish, noble fish (cooked or prepared as sushis / sashimis), white meats in creamy sauces, creamy goat's cheese (Pélardons), Thaï food.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 L'Etincelle – dominated by barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc, along with Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Muscat, and Roussanne – offers a quite Muscat-driven nose of tangerine rind, fresh lemon, and orange blossom, with hints of more diverse sweet and pungent floral notes (lily, acacia) behind that. The Chenin Blanc really only signals its presence on the palate, with quince and musk melon accented by lime zest and chalk. Quite dense and lees-inflected, with persistent bitter-sweet citrus oil but also ample fresh fruit juiciness and a delightful overall sense of invigoration, this memorably distinct wine should drink nicely for a couple of years. "
