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

Fine, abundant bubbles define the Cuvée Jean-Louis Brut; its bubbles are smaller than any of our other sparkling wines. Bright and fruity on the nose, this wine exudes aromas typical of Chenin Blanc – apples, apricots and a hint of honey. The palate holds an explosion of fine bubbles followed by a smooth, fruity finish.

A blend of all white grapes from the Loire Valley, Charentes, and PACA region (Provence-Alps-Côte d'Azur): Chenin Blanc (40%), Ugni Blanc (20%) and various other grapes that change each year to ensure that our style remains consistent.

Critical Acclaim

"Spry and alert, with crisp apple aromas and some baking spice for good measure. Equally crisp on the palate, where lime, green apple and pepper run the show. Moderate but extended in terms of feel and finish; tasty and snappy overall."

This bubbly is dry and crisp, very light on the palate, pale in color with tiny bubbles that last "forever." An excellent value. So refreshing with no harshness at all. I wanted to order more but found that it was sold out.
