Domaine Pierre Riffault Sancerre
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The Riffault family has been winegrowers for multiple generations.
- The Sancerre Rouge comes from vines averaging 25 years in age.
- The vineyard is located on steep slopes offering good exposure.
- The grapes are manually sorted prior to placing them into the press.
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: The vineyard soils for the Sancerre are clay and limestone. Vinification is done in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged for 6 months prior to bottling.
Tasting Notes: A nice freshness and minerality. The nose offers citrus odors and white fruits. Fresh and exotic fruit aromas on the final stretch over orange and dried fruits.
