NOBLE ROT

Noble rot refers to the parasitic fungus (mold), Botrytis cinerea,  that develops on grapes under certain conditions. The mold forms on the skin of the grapes causing the grapes to shrivel, reducing moisture content and thereby concentrating the sugar and flavor of the grapes.

French Sauternes, German Beerenauslese and Hungarian Tokay are produced from such grapes.
