Akmeniné (meaning “made of stones” in Lithuanian) is, as the name suggests, the wine of Séb’s which leans most heavily in to the nervier, more mineral side of Sauvignon. There’s still the unmistakably lush character to the fruit which has become the hallmark of these wines, but one underpinned by that little more freshness and verve.

Sebastien Riffault

Sébastien Riffault produces a kind of Sancerre that bears little resemblance to the wines most produce in that appellation today. He often harvests with a large percentage of botrytis and is not afraid of oxygen or time on skins. The resulting wines are complex, nigh kaleidoscopic expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that really resonate.
