Have you ever heard of noble rot? Maybe by it’s more elegant name, botrytis? It’s a form of grey fungus affecting wine grapes that has to be timed just right to develop a delicious sweet wine like the internationally renowned French sauterne. Timing, climate, moisture and picking-time has to be just so, or the whole harvest is ruined. There is no better time of year to visit Bordeaux and see this delicate process — pourriture or pourriture noble in French — in action and taste the delicious wines than autumn (so pencil in a trip for October now).
