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

It is an "appellation controlee" of only 7 hectares. The vines are 35 to 40 years of average age; the oldest are more than 80 years and give wood to make new vines carrying the originality of the place.

Critical Acclaim

"It is not easy to describe one of the majestic wines of France. This 2007 is still a wine in the making. All the elements are there: the intensity of dry fruits, the richness of spice and white fruit jams, opulent and austere at the same time. It is an extraordinary wine, with freshness, sweetness, dryness and acidity all just about perfectly balanced. Give it at least seven years."
96 Points

"Yellow-gold. Intensely floral, mineral-driven scents of pear, honey, spicecake and minerals. Intense minerality adds vibrancy to the orchard fruit and citrus flavors, with a deeper note of honey emerging on the back half. Shows impressive clarity and steely focus for a rich wine, finishing with lingering stoniness and a touch of bitter lemon. This is the freshest, fruitiest and most linear bottling of this wine I've seen since the stunning 1986. "
93 Points

"This has lush dried apricot, peach, quince and blood orange notes laced with ginger, cardamom, green tea and roasted almond, all backed by well-buried, mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2015. 1,600 cases made."
