Overripe wines Long aging wines
These wines come from grapes whose harvest is delayed, which has the effect of contributing to the over-ripeness of the grapes.
Thus, the riper these grapes offer more sugar and alcohol. It is therefore, by an extreme maturity that the taste is amplified and gives this soft juice, aromatic power. But also, the gift of long keeping.
However, not all vintages lend themselves to this. The off-season after the harvest is decisive for preserving the grapes that will produce the excellence of this juice.
The grapes are depleted of water. The consequence of this reduction gives the juice more sugar and aromas. This has the corollary of a high concentration of alcohol.
In summary, these wines are sublimated by a strong intensity in aromas and sweetness. These exceptional wines can be kept for more than 10 years.
