Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

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

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

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.

I really enjoyed this wine. For the price I thought the nose was that of a more expensive Bordeaux. This is a real value. Let it breathe in the glass or decant for an hour and let this baby open up. The fruit although not too evident out of the bottle will burst forth with airtime. Definitely will buy again!

I don't have experience with many French wines, but this was very enjoyable and will definitely order again at this price point. Excellent value. Needed an hour or more to breathe.

Nice Bordeaux. Soft, sophisticated -- but I can buy an equally good Bordeaux down the street from Trader Joes.

A very young Bordeaux but shows tremendous density and opened up beautifully. For the price this wine is a steal.

I was looking for a Bordeaux but didn't want to spend very much. We have ready access to California wines and I wanted to do some comparisons. This wine was smooth from the get-go with a lingering finish. It was an easy drinker that I wouldn't hesitate to order again and again.

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."
