The fact that this is called Auksinis - “Gold” in Lithuanian - gives some hint of the golden coloured liquid contained within. There’s all the usual complexity to the fruit - which somehow drifts all the way from bruised orchard to tropical in just one sip - in addition to rich texture and spice. A wine which absolutely demands food.

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.
