  • About

moût de raisins partiellement fermenté issu de vendanges passerillées is the cumbersome French name for partially fermented grape must extracted from raisined grapes and is a term used on labels of some French sweet wines since Alsace has sole rights to vendange tardive. According to eu regulations, the must has to have a total sugar content of at least 272 g/l and the finished wine at least 8% alcohol.
