Baumé

Baumé is a French measure of the density (sugar content) of the must to calculate the potential alcohol of the wine. Similar scales to display the sugar content of the must are ‘Brix’ and ‘Oechsle’. A degree of Baumé (° Bé) equals approximately 19.5 grams of sugar / L and is approximately 7 degrees Oechsle.
