Pinot Noir from one of Sancerre's iconic domains. More info

The La Noue parcel is made up of 7 different kinds of vines between 8 and 56 years old – they are planted in clay-chalk and kimmeridgian marl soils. This is one of the closest parcels to the domain in Sury-en-Vaux. There is an abundance of Pinot Noir across the 2.5 hectares of vines, and this is where Stéphane produces the cuvée. There is also a rosé made from the grapes of this parcel. After picking the grapes by hand, they are carefully sorted before vatting. Stéphane carries out only a light extraction in order to preserve the grape aromas, a process that allows the terroir and its characteristics to show through. The wine is matured for 12 months. We recommend pairing this wine with a delicious dish of red meat.

Sancerre La Noue Claude Riffault serve at a temperature of 14°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Steak de bœuf tout juste saisi, Légumes d'été, Abondance.
