A full 37 producers make this distinctive vin doux naturel from just 74 ha of muscat blanc à petits grains on the northern tip of the island. Grapes are picked at between 14 and 15% potential alcohol and made, by the addition of alcohol at an early stage of fermentation, into a relatively elegant sweet wine.
