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

Authentic Vintage captures the essence of an outstanding Champagne Vintage revealing the unique character of the year and creating both a style and emotion. At Canard-Duchene, the vinttage blend is usually made predominantly from Pinot Noir. It is then aged gracefully for five years to express its true potential. Authentic Vintage's mature style makes it the high point of many delicious pairings.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 vintage was exceptional, and this wine reflects the richness of the year while still preserving a fine fruity character. Fruit flavors range from pineapple to peach, with a fine line of acidity to cut through it all."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
