Vin Bourru (Very Young Wine) – France

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Le vin bourru est un moût en fermentation. Ce vin trouble (levures en suspension) contient encore beaucoup de sucre. Il ne se conserve pas longtemps, les levures continuant à transformer le sucre en alcool.

As you can clearly see in the image above the wine is still fermenting and is cloudy. It is the first wine to be released to drink, usually around this time in September.
