Origin: Sancerre, France
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Sebastien Riffault is, quite simply, a natural winemaking legend of the Sancerre region of the Loire. Yet his wines will taste completely different to how pretty much every conventional Sancerre producers’ wines will taste. They really must be tasted to be fully understood, with the notion of the Sancerre appellation style put to one side. For us personally, they create ‘wow moments’ every time.

Sauvignon Blanc. 12 months of open-top maceration in old wood. Fermentation with wild yeasts. Aged for 3 years in old barrels. No SO2.
