Sebastien Riffault - Les Quarterons Sancerre 2018

Sebastien Riffault - Les Quarterons Sancerre 2018

$59.00

Region: Sancerre / Loire Valley

Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc

This is the entry level wine from Sébastien Riffault. The Botrytis fruit is restrained with more "traditional" Sancerre characters on the palate. Not to say the wine is not a joy. Crisp, clean and fresh with notes of green apple, citrus, gooseberry and light tropical notes. Lean with a saline minerality and loads of character. Lovely. 

 

Nerd Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc from two parcels totalling 4ha, across Verdigny and Sancerre. 30 year old vines on average, grown on clay and limestone. 20% Botryitis. Direct press into stainless steel tank, then élevage for 2 years in tank. 10mg/L SO2 at bottling.
