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

Blanc de Blancs translates from French to mean white wine from white grapes. Our Blanc de Blancs is a unique sparkling wine blend combining the traditional Chardonnay grape with Pinot Gris. The Chardonnay provides a crisp acidity and fresh citrus notes, while Pinot Gris rounds out the mouth with stone fruit flavors and rich spicy tones. Extended aging, coupled with the outstanding fruit flavors of Napa Valley produces an elegant sparkling wine that perfectly expresses Mumm Napa: traditional techniques and contemporary Napa Valley winemaking.

Critical Acclaim

"Made from 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Gris, this lovely Blanc de Blancs brims with vanilla cream, lime and pear aromas and flavors, with the yeasty, baked bread dough toastiness that mark the best sparkling wines. It’s basically dry and quite high in acidity, which gives it a brisk, clean finish. Drink this fine bubbly now and for the next 6–8 years. "

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
