Sancerre Auksinis Sauvignon Blanc ORANGE WINE Biodynamic production, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, rounded, elegant, subtle Sancerre herbaceous notes with complexity and intrigue from the maceration, stunning wine. There is nobody in Sancerre making wine quite like Sebastien Riffault, what a triumph. His Saivignon capture the essence of the variety but add the uniqueness of his terroir and wine making. The skin nacerations are beautifully balanced and the concentration is always backed up by lovely acid balance and freshness. Our favourite Loire Sauvignon for sure.

Starting his own label in 2002, Sebastien Riffault took over 2 hectares near Sury-en-Vaux from his father and well known wine maker Etienne Riffault.

Quickly converting to biodynamic principles he started making a name for himself in the local community. Harvesting late in October, up to a month later than the rest of the region, Sebastien ensures his grapes are as ripe as can be. In the cellar, the natural approach continues, wild yeast fermentation, aged on lees and limited use of sulphur. All this comes together to show the true expression of his terroir in wines full of depth, complexity and style.
