Details

Sancerre Rouge Raudonas Sebastien Riffault, Biodynamic wine, Unfined & Unfiltered, Low Sulpur wine, exceptional complexity and showing lovely maturity. The wine is a little funky at first, but developing to show ripe and spicy Pinot Noir character, with hints of raspberry, earth & Mint. Riffault's wines are very different to the standard tourist experience of Sancerre, the red also shows how natural production ensures purity of flavour and varietal expression. Like his white wines, Riffault's red are full of vitality and intensity and make for superb natural drinking, this one for intense Loire dishes like Rabbit with prunes or strong hams. cheeses and charcuterie.

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.
