It is a fortified wine (mistelle or vin de liqueur), made from a blend of lightly fermented grape must and Cognac Eau-de- vie.
Accoding to the legend, during the harvest of 1589, a winemaker accidentally added grape must into a barrel that he believed was empty but in fact contained eau-de-vie. The act of mixing the eau-de-vie with the fresh grape juice is referred to as "assemblage“. It stops the fermentation of the grape must through a process called "mutage".
