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

#74 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Aromas of grapefruit, Key lime and hazelnut. Flavors of mandarin orange, ripe red apple, autolyzed yeast with a long finish.

Classic Vintage Brut is a food lover that shines in the presence of all things spicy, salty or fried. Its classic partner would be a perfectly roasted chicken infused with flavors of fresh thyme and Meyer lemon. Eggs Benedict, lobster mac and cheese or French fries with truffle salt pair beautifully, while spicy tuna tartare makes for a sublime hors d'oeuvre.

Critical Acclaim

"Seamless from start to finish, both rich and elegantly sleek. Floral Asian pear and creamy almond aromas lead to complex and delicately balanced flavors of lively lemon and raspberry, plus ginger and spice. The finish lingers beautifully. "

I've always loved champagne and over the past 40 yrs., I drank quite a bit of champagne. I'm just learning what to look for so I'm not an expert. But, this is very nice. It's light tasting with great perlage. I'm disappointed thast this vintage in now unavailable.

A great value. Very complex for a wine at this price (or any wine!) I look forward to paying them a visit during an upcoming trip to the area in early 2013.

Was really looking forward to trying this one, but it came off harsh. The acidity was all there, but the balance was not. A one sided affair in this case with none of the yeasty or toasty flavors that others seemed to get.

Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
