A lively, mineral Sancerre to accompany seafood dishes. More info

This is the result of Jérôme Bressy's hard work and dedication: an array of indigenous grapes, biodynamically farmed and vinified as naturally as possible. Whole bunches are pressed and ferment naturally in tronconic vats before being raised in barrels, in demi-muids and concrete vats for 34 months. This wine is a gem with complex fruity and floral notes. The palate is full-bodied and the tannins elegant. We recommend aging this wine for a few years.

Sancerre Les Chailloux Claude Riffault serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Filet de saumon fûmé, Homard à la plancha, Poisson mariné au citron.

Information about domain Claude Riffault

Located in Sury-en-Vaux, to the north of the Sancerre appellation, domain Claude Riffault spans 15.3 hectares, covering 10 lieux-dits. The vineyard is placed with a majority of Sauvignon Blanc (10.5 hectares), completed by 3 hectares of Pinot Noir. Stéphane Riffault obtained organic certification in 2016. Yields are limited by debudding and cordoning. Vinifications are traditional and élevage is precise. The domain has greatly improved these past years, and their cuvées are becoming more and more sought after.
