The Boucauds parcel is located right next to the domain on clay-chalk soil and marly earth. The vines are between 10 and 50 years old, and are exposed to the south-east at an altitude of 200-235 metres. These elements all confer richness and minerality to this cuvée. The grapes are picked by hand before a careful sorting process. They are then pressed pneumatically and the must is clarified at low temperatures. Vinification take place in stainless steel vats and barrels. Maturation takes 7-8 months on lees with some stirring. This wine reveals aromas of white fruit and citrus, being a Sauvignon at once ample and solid. It has a lovely acidity and a delicate minerality. We recommend serving this cuvée with fish and crustacean dishes.

Sancerre Les Boucauds Claude Riffault serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Saint-Jacques aux agrumes et crème, Dorade au four, Fromage de chèvre frais et épices.
