Sélection Grains Nobles et Quintescence (Noble Rot)

Sélection Grains Nobles et Quintescence   (Noble Rot)

This level of maturity requires several successive passages for the gatherers to collect only the berries affected by noble rot. Quantities are of course tiny except for a few very large vineyards where noble rot grows every year. The pickings are assembled before the alcoholic fermentation, which takes place very slowly to be exhausted and reach a level of 10 to 12 °, leaving 80 to 120 grams of residual sugar in general.

 

Conditions for the wine labeled as “Appellation Alsace Late Harvest” or “Sélection de Grains Nobles”:
    Harvest after prior declaration to the INAO, at least 8 days before the expected date for harvest
    Chaptalization is prohibited
    Mandatory manual harvesting
    Indication of grape variety and vintage
    Volume Control
