The essential originality of the wine making in Barsac Sauternes is first of all the way of harvesting. A normal maturity is not enough, it is necessary to wait for the “over-ripeness” of the grape and a rot so special, so particular to the climate, that it has been qualified as “noble”.
It is caused by a characteristic mycoderma, “Botrytis Cinerea”. It is this tiny fungus which, in the great years, provides the famous “roast” recognizable in the old bottles.
