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

This is a great expression of the "Cote Brune," or "brown slope," terroir in the north, at once mineral and floral. Dark and concentrated, it is reminiscent of the great Cote-Rotie of yesteryear.

Critical Acclaim

"A sleek, racy, almost taut style, with red currant, loganberry and pomegranate notes that slowly flesh out, showing more plum and blackberry hints. Then dark ganache and briar take over on the finish and help it expand even more. Should blossom in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2025."
94 Points

"Inky ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cherry-vanilla, woodsmoke, olive tapenade and potpourri. Then sappy, energetic and youthfully lithe, with excellent verve to its black and blue fruit compote, violet and candied licorice flavors. This youthfully taut, focused wine finishes very long and vibrant, with firm minerality and lingering dark fruit notes.
Range: 92-94"
