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

#97 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

This wine has a pale amber yellow color, with golden highlights and a fine, steady flow of light bubbles. It also has an intense nose, clearly marked by the great northern Pinot Noirs from the Reims mountain: this includes citrus (zesty orange), floral notes (sweet flowers, such as hawthorn, with light rosy hints) and ripe juicy fruits (vine peach). On contact with air, more caramel notes appear (baked apple, tatin, roasted almond) as well as some woody hints. The wine is dense and winey in the mouth, with the very mature sweet bite that is natural to Pinots Noirs, expressing its unique, full-bodied and smooth personality. The soft, warm notes (hazelnut and almond) blend with the ripe fruit. The fine, well-balanced bubbles quickly add balance to this winey structure. The mineral, almost iodine freshness is pronounced in the middle of the mouth, adding to the sense of balance with an extremely long, racy, smooth finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This well-meshed version is framed by mouthwatering acidity and enlivened by flavors of yellow apple, pear, black currant and lightly toasted almond."
94 Points

"A polished Champagne, classic in its presentation of red fruit and chalk, all held in perfect balance, this is brisk, elegant, tightly structured, a savory 2006 that will age with grace for ten years or longer. "
94 Points

"Light, bright yellow. Intensely perfumed bouquet of melon, pear, jasmine and iodine, with mineral and buttered toast accents. Deeply pitched, palate-staining orchard and pit fruit and lemon pith flavors are brightened by zesty acidity and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Powerful but lithe, finishing with excellent thrust and lingering floral and mineral qualities."
93 Points

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...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
