I’ve heard for years about the wildly extroverted and extra-ordinary Sancerre wines from Sebastien Riffault. His wines are an outlier of ripeness in a sea of lean high acid chalky juice. Rich with an amber glow.

He picks his Sauvignon Blanc at the last minute to reach a level of ripeness you’d never expect could come from the tiny cold pocket of the Loire.

Now I like both styles, but this is super fun and something completely new to me.

Think juicy peach, fresh apricot, and bright yellow pineapple. But still with high acid - nothing flabby.

Very bone-dry, non-sweet sancerre. Perfect all year round especially for cocktail hour

Unlike any Sancerre (or sauv blanc in general) that I’ve ever had. The nose, the texture, and the finish. In a league of its own.

Inga tydliga SB tecken. Istället gula äpplen och oxidation
