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

The majority of Merlot allows an easy, young and regular consumption, associating charm and roundness. Château Haut Bessac develops a complex bouquet putting together black fruit aromas and delicate spicy emanations. The mouth is full of fruits and is very expressive. A wine without complexes, easy to open at every occasion.

Blend: 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon
