Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Based in the village of Sury-en-Vaux, the Stéphane Riffault works 33 different parcels in 8 different lieu-dits spread across 4 villages. The 13.5 hectares of vines are plowed and no synthetic material is used and starting in 2017 the property has been certified organic by ECOCERT and biodynamic by BIODYVIN. Unlike most Sancerre producers, the entire harvest is carried out by hand and an extensive sorting takes place before the grapes are crushed. Stéphane’s wife, Benedicte, leads the harvest team while Stéphane manages the sorting and press during harvest. The place known as Les Chasseignes is frequent on the Sancerre appellation. This local nominative designates a Caillottes soil: shallow limestone soil and subsoil of stones nested together.

Tasting notes:
This wine expresses itself on its delicacy of fruit. On the palate, the limestone minerality gives it length and persistence.

To be enjoyed alone or with grilled fish.

P&P £4.95
