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

A beautiful bright yellow robe with green tints. Floral and fruity nose, this Graves white wine seduces by its body, its freshness, and its long finish.

Enjoy as an aperitif or pair with oysters and fish dishes. It is remarkable with goat's cheese.

Chateau Doms is an attractive property first planted with vine in the early 18th century. It is situated near the Garonne River at Portets, on the alluvial soil of large stones and sand. The cellar is supported by enormous wooden beams dating back from 1660, but the equipment is thoroughly modern. Chateau Doms owes its character to an agreeable blend balancing Semillon and Sauvignon.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
