Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

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

Chateau Hyot is a deep ruby color, with a clear shine, revealing a structured nose of ripe fruit with hints of pepper. Remarkable balance and soft silky tannins sustain a long and memorable finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Very ripe, with saturated cassis, blackberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit flavors that are racy and distinctive, thanks to fresh acidity and sleek tannins. The long finish has nice density. Drink now through 2016."

Nice soft red wine, classic bordeaux smoothness with a hint of dry at the end. Very surprised at the quality of this wine given the $14.99 price point.

Learn About Chateau Hyot

Chateau Hyot showcases the masterful skill of winemaker Amelie Aubert and consultant Michel Rolland. The wine is a Merlot-based blend, from 40 year-old vines, with Cabernet Franc bringing sophisticated aromas and silky tannins, and a dose of Cabernet Sauvignon for a structural backbone.

A deep respect for the vine is the driving force behind Amelie Aubert's philosophy and approach to making wine. "Quality is not possible with quantity," she explains, "and I want my wine to capture the essence of this fantastic terroir."
