Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Sebastien Riffault is winemaker and owner of his eponymously named domaine in the appellation of Sancerre in the Loire Valley. White wine of this area is made from Sauvignon Blanc, typically made into a fresh, minerally, citrusy style. One certainly wouldn’t think of Sancerre to shake things up, but that is just what Sebastien has done with his two hectares in Sury-en-Vaux. His father is winemaker Etienne Riffault with vines firmly rooted in his upbringing. The difference between Sebastien and other winemakers is his approach in both the vineyards and his winemaking. While many in Sancerre still use chemicals in the vineyards and manipulate the wines, Sebastien has chosen to take the unpopular route with his efforts to be certified organic. The winemaking is done naturally and skin contact is implemented making for a geeky style of wine that is unique, yet enchanting. 

This wine is quite a departure from Sebastien’s other wines. The only strong parallel is the wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc and comes from 50-year-old vines. None of the harvested fruit contains botrytis and winemaking is done in steel only, no oak or skin contact. The juice does, however, spend two years on its lees and minimal sulfur is used.
