Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
For the last 200 years, this tiny, family-owned Champagne house has been carefully fine tuning their craft. Very few know about them (due to limited importation) but those lucky enough to have sampled Henriot Rosé know what to expect: elegant, sophisticated aromas with flavors of red fruits, rose petals and spice. A clean, effervescent mousse and a long finish.
"A rich and toasty version, featuring roasted almond, brioche, honey and graphite notes. Vibrant acidity and a finely textured bead keep this mouthwatering."
"The discrete Henriot labeling is echoed in this elegant wine. Like so many Henriot Champagnes it has good bottle age, shows toast as well as light red fruits. There is a depth of flavor here, the texture of yeasty mousse and apple skins going right through the taste. Ready to drink, but worth aging."
"Light orange-pink. Mineral- and smoke-accented aromas of red berries and blood orange, with a spicy nuance that gains strength in the glass. Toasty and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, with silky texture and a suave floral overtone. The toast and red berry qualities come back strong on the long, clinging finish."
International Wine Cellar
"Light salmon color; lifted and crisp with balance and elegance; lovely raspberry and citrus; ripe, generous and long. "
"Cherry-red scents meld into the smoky aroma of gunflint, with both tart fruit and light tannin playing out on the palate in a delicate and sophisticated wine. The flintiness strengthens the tannin in the end, suited to seared magret of duck."

Learn About Champagne
Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
