Reading Wine Labels

These pages showcase labels from some of the finest wines in the world, each one with accompanying notes to explain some of the more unfamiliar terms that may confuse the wine buyer. Unlike some other wine writers I concentrate on foreign language terms and specific points of interest - I don't feel phrases such as 'Produce of France' or 'Alc. Vol. 13.5%' need much explanation. Click on individual labels to view larger images, or click here to view each one in sequence, beginning with Bordeaux Left Bank.
