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

This wine is characterized by a deep color, almost black in its younger years. The expressive nose shows aromas of black fruits and spices. In the mouth has intensity while remaining smooth and civilized with its fine tannins. This is a charming and distinguished wine to drink young to its fullness and fruit, or even better to age slowly to find the characteristics of its terroir.

Critical Acclaim

"This chateau is under the same ownership as Saint-Julien's Chateau Talbot. The wine is firm, fruity, rich and concentrated, showing all the best qualities of 2010. There is a complex array of black fruits which are sustained by the firm, solid tannins. Cellar Selection."
93 Points

"Really ripe almost jammy sweet fruit with raspberries, black currant and vanilla. Some fresh citrusy notes too. Full on the palate with ripe fruit and soft texture. Fine smooth tannins and good length. This chateau always makes serious wine. Drink from 2016. "
