This phenomenon is known as Noble Rot ("Pourriture Noble"). Read less

Incredibly ripe, with loads of honey, spice and dried fruit character already. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, spicy finish. Really outstanding. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 La Tour Blanche 750ml
