2019 CLAUDE RIFFAULT – SANCERRE (750ML)

$49.50

ORIGIN | France

FEATURES | Organic & Biodynamic

TASTING NOTES | Grass, Gooseberry, Grapefruit, Lime, Melon, Citrus, Mineral & Flint

It offers a bright, intense and slightly flinty bouquet of ripe stone fruit and pear aromas intertwined with delicate flint stone notes. Full-bodied, fresh and elegant on the palate, this is an intense, quite rich and powerful, textured, piquant and finely salty Sancerre with a long, elegant and quite powerful but balanced finish. The finish reveals a good grip and a dash of fresh lemon and apple juice.

ABOUT THE WINEMAKER | Domaine Claude Riffault, which has been family-owned and run for five generations, is now in the hands of Claude’s son Stéphane who is working the soil in a much more organic fashion than his father. Chemical herbicides are no longer used on the parcels and there is a heavy weed cover in most of the parcels. The family owns 33 different (and quite small) plots on steep hillsides in four different villages. Part of the vineyard is made up of limestone soil which produces while vines with great fruit and explosive aromas. They also own a smaller amount of vines on flint soil which produces wines of incredible minerality and precision. The vines are ll vinified by plot and by soil type before some are assembled to make a small number of bottlings.
