Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

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

A blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%), the 2011 is sourced from 60-year-old vines and is limited production with vinification being reactive. The resulting wine is powerful, complex and persistent.

Critical Acclaim

"This powerful wine comes from a superbly sited vineyard in the heart of Saint-Emilion. It is concentrated with huge tannins laced with black plum juice, dark berries and a dense, brooding character. A powerhouse of both fruit and tannin, it needs to age.

Cellar Selection"
95 Points

"Deep ruby. Red cherry, blackberry and black pepper on the nose. Big, rich and dense, with red cherry and black cherry coating the mouth. The unctuous, chocolatey finish shows juicy acidity and a lovely uplifting floral note. The well-placed vines on clay-and-limestone soil are surrounded on three sides by those of Canon, Angelus and Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse. Jonathan Maltus told me the cabernet franc is from 1947, and because it's planted on clay over limestone, it gives the wine a unique mouthfeel and will require time and patience. This is a truly outstanding VCM, and one of the real successes of the 2011 vintage.

Range: 91-94 Points"
94 Points

"A spectacular effort from Jonathan Maltus, this inky/purple-colored, complex 2011 (made from 60-year-old vines and a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) offers up notes of graphite, sweet blackberry and cassis, and hints of earth, espresso, spice and chocolate. Already drinking well, this rich, layered, full-bodied St.-Emilion was cropped at a low 30 hectoliters per hectare. It can be enjoyed now and over the next decade."
93 Points

"This is savory and delicious, with chocolate, meat and berry character. Full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish. Chalky aftertaste. Cocoa powder, too. 60% merlot and 40% cabernet franc."
91 Points

"Dense and vibrant. Lovely purity of fruit. Lively and fresh (35% Cabernet Franc) on the palate. Lift and elegance this year. Drink 2018-2030."
