Sebastien Riffault produces Sancerre unlike any other, a true maverick. His belief in biodiversity, biodynamic principles and natural winemaking set him apart from the usual chemically enhanced expressions. This is Sauvignon Blanc from 50 year old vines farmed over 12 hectares of limestone and clay, fermented with indigenous yeasts and age in old barrels. Zero fining, zero filtration and zero SO2, the perfect hat trick.

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.
