Vin naturellement doux

Designation for a sweet wine whose fermentation was not terminated by sprit (addition of alcohol) but in a natural way. The yeasts stop their work due to an extremely high sugar content and a high proportion of residual sugar remains. Such wines usually do not have a high alcohol content. In contrast to this, "Vin doux" means that the fermentation process was already short and "Vin doux naturel" means that the fermentation was only completed towards the end or after the fermentation was completed. See also in detail under Vin doux naturel.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
