Vin Doux Naturels

sometimes referred to as VDN, Vin Doux Naturels the French term for fortified wines created by mutage, in which the fermentation of late-harvest grapes is arrested by the addition of grape spirit, resulting in a wine of 15-18% alcohol. Its best-known examples are the three great, traditional fortified wines of Roussillon: Banyuls, Maury and Rivesaltes.
