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: 12.5%

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 Chateau St. Sulpice Bordeaux Rouge is a blend of 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This winemaking approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters. The wine exhibits black cherry, spice and plum notes, with great depth and balance.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium red. Cherry, redcurrant and gingerbread on the nose. Fleshy and broad but dry, offering chewy red berry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of candied rose. Finishes with good length and peppery bite, repeating the gingerbread note. This is a very traditional style of Bordeaux that barely exists anymore and straddles the line between rose and red wine; it would be great with a roasted chicken or a mushroom-based dish."

A chateau that one can always count on to deliver great quality at an excellent and affordable price point, the 2010 Ch Saint Sulpice is a delicious Bordeaux AOC. Ripe red fruit flavors abound and round out nicely on the palate; soft and bright in the finish.

Learn About Chateau Saint Sulpice

Chateau Saint Sulpice, Bordeaux Rouge, is a 100 acre estate situated in a village of the same name in the northern section of Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion. The vineyard is planted with 70% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, and it enjoys a microclimate with an extra measure of warmth in early autumn. The winemaking is directed by owner Pierre Duberge and his son, Christophe, who take pride in producing a soft, fruity wine with a spicy aroma typical of the Merlot dominated reds of the "right bank".
