A wine made in tiny quantities - literally by the small barrel full and only when certain late autumnal weather conditions prevail and the grapes can become affected by botrytis cinerea (noble rot) as in Sauternes. André Iché makes this wine out of passion and of a desire to make something out of the ordinary. It is not recognised as a wine within the local Appellation Controllée laws and is hence sold as Vin de Table yet the contents of those few bottles belies its humble labelling. Would that more wines were made this way.

Made from Grenache Blanc which is left on the vines until late into the autumn this late harvested gem is full of honeyed intensity and is envleoped in a creamy texture bursting with pineapple and lychee fruitiness. The aftertaste seems to linger for ever.
