Tasted double-blind. The 2018 Domaine Sebastien Riffault “Les Quarterons” is a very unusual Sancerre. On the nose, this has more in common with a grappa than any wine I’ve ever had. Black licorice, dusty basement and a green/vegetal thing that I typically associate with white lightning (hence the grappa call). High acid that gives the sensation of a tongue prick. Different to be sure. Probably not something to choose if you’re looking for a more prototypical Sancerre.

開けたては典型的なSBの味わいだか、開栓して数日おくと青っぽさから華やかな香りに。味わいも厚みがあるハニーや白い花のニュアンスが加わる@The Winery 4,070 incl tax

Really unique in a good way. A bit funky but not much. Big bodied, especially for Sancerre. From Barkada.
