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 aspect - clear, crystalline and translucent; the fresh-fruit and white flower notes offset by a hint of citrus and a vanilla finish on the nose; a wine at once rounded and delicate where depth and acidity combine and contrast with each other.

Critical Acclaim

"With it's distinctive flower bottle, this is an immediately recognizable Champagne, both in its looks and its distinctive Perrier-Jouët elegance. Lively while fruits play with acidity and a tangy back-bone of apple skins."
93 Points

"Loads of gingerbread, honey and grapefruit flavors course through this vibrant Champagne, which is medium-bodied and balanced, lingering nicely on the nutty finish. Should develop quickly. Drink now through 2024."
92 Points

"Light gold. Fresh citrus and pear aromas are complemented by notes of brioche, honey and minerals. Fruit-driven, silky and refreshing, with an undertone of minerals adding lift to the sappy pear and nectarine flavors. Finishes on a brisk note of lemon curd, with very good, gently toasty persistence. I like this wine's balance and sneaky depth."
91 Points

"A relatively gentle 2002, this begins in a tight place, yielding little more than ginger scents. With air, fresh nut flavors emerge, hinting at Marcona almonds, macadamia and something sweeter, like marzipan. Probably at its best in a year or two, to serve with a whole roasted fish."

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
