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

Ch. La Fleur Morange is a family property managed by two passionate winemakers with a desire to combine traditional expertise and modern technology. The average age of vinyard is 100 years old and the soil for the vines is a complex mixture known only in Saint Emilion contibue, which contributes to the finesse of the tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"A more classic cuvee, the 2011 La Fleur Morange (cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare) is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot that may have the highest natural alcohol of any wine in this vintage, 15%. Stunningly pure notes of black cherries and black currant liqueur intermixed with licorice, incense and acacia flowers are followed by a dense, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine that seems to have more in common with a vintage such as 2009 or 2010 than most 2011s. The wine's acidity is lower than in most of its peers, but the levels of concentration and intensity are very high. This beauty should drink well for 15-20 years.
