Gaillac Sweet Wine: Wine is made from successively harvested grapes at a low temperature. For more concentrated wines, the process continues for several months.
Gaillac “Late Harvest” Wine: Coming from the best plots of Loin de l’oeil and Ondenc, grapes are handpicked and successively harvested; thus, leaving a concentration of sugar on the vine trunk through natural passerillage or “raisining” or by noble rot.
