This is the Sauternes-style wine affected by noble rot (botrytis). Usually made of Chardonnay from the superb Alban Vineyard. Chardonnay has thin skins and is thus easily affected by botrytis.

Wine AdvocateMade from 100% Chardonnay from the Alban Vineyard, the 2005 Mr. K. The Nobleman possesses 235 grams of residual sugar per liter as well as exceptional acid levels. This incredibly rich, sweet white is almost like the Quintessence bottlings from Alsace's Domaine Weinbach. Its mind-boggling purity, balance, intensity, and sweetness are balanced by the wine's zesty acidity. An amazing achievement fashioned from 100% botrytised fruit, it will keep for 20 or more years.
