This Sancerre originates from forty-year-old Sauvignon vines grown in deep white terres blanches soil. On tasting, it exhibits an attractive pale gold appearance which exudes notes of vanilla, lime, peach and pear. Well structured and powerful, it is preserved by an appealing mineral character which lends it great persistence and enables it to pair with iodine foods. The domain has achieved this by means of an alcoholic fermentation in demi-muid barrels and a 9-month élevage on fine lees.

Sancerre Les Denisottes Claude Riffault serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Tartine gratinées au sainte-maure de touraine, Huître rôties au sancerre, Salade corse de langouste.
