In Part 1 of this episode of IntoWineTV, host Lisa Kolenda and wine panelists Bartholomew Broadbent, Michael Cervin, and Richard Jennings discuss the controversial topic of rising wine alcohol levels.
What is driving the trend towards higher alcohol levels in wine?
What is the downside to higher alcohol content in wine?
Does a high alcohol content in wine make it unbalanced?
Does a wine with high alcohol content have trouble aging?
To what degree, if it all, is the higher alcohol trend varietal or region specific?
The panel discusses these issues and more. See previous IntoWineTV videos.
