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

Blend: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Haut-Brisson, a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc (13.5% natural alcohol), was produced from yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare. Abundant notes of deep black cherries, black currants, loamy soil, underbrush and Provencal herbs are found in this medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion. Impressive purity, texture and length suggest this cuvee can be drunk young or cellared for a decade or more.
