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

Esclans is the second label in the d'Eslcans flight and it leads into partial oak vinification giving it hints of the complexity and structure for which Chateau d'Esclans high end cuvees are known.

Critical Acclaim

"Very suave, elegant and expressive, with a spicy aroma and intense dry cherry and plum flavors that are modulated by buttercream notes. The rich finish features candied ginger and glazed apricot. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made."
90 Points

"Grenache and rolle partially fermented in demi-muids Pale, bright pink. Dusty, floral-accented red fruits and tangerine on the nose, with notes of sage and anise adding complexity. Fat but dry, with incisive flavors of bitter cherry and orange pith spreading out on the back half. Rich but by no means exotic, finishing with good thrust and a lingering floral quality. Strikes a nice balance between the nerviness of the Whispering Angel and the baroque character of the Clans and Garrus. This should work well with a variety of strongly seasoned foods."
