Akmeniné (meaning “made of stones” in Lithuanian) is, as the name suggests, the wine of Séb’s which leans heavier in to the nervier, more mineral side of Sauvignon. 2014 has always been a vintage marked out for the truly balanced, fine-boned wines it produced and that still shines through here despite showing the huge aromatics and dense fruit which Séb is so well known.

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.
