2018 Sancerre, Les Chailloux, Domaine Claude Riffault

Les Chailloux can be seen from the winery. A higher proportion of silex in its soil provides an appealing gun-flint note to accompany the powerful citrus flavours. The 2018 has superb complexity here, with textures to excite lovers of Sancerre.

2018 Sancerre, Les Chailloux, Domaine Claude Riffault
Domaine Claude Riffault

Domaine Claude Riffault is now run by Stéphane. This is a family with a serious fine wine pedigree: Stéphane’s brother runs Burgundy’s legendary estate, Domaine Etienne Sauzet, and Stéphane himself studied winemaking in Beaune before returning to the family domaine. This Burgundian expertise is demonstrated in his flavoursome, perfectly balanced Pinot Noir, whilst his Sancerre impressed us with its focus, its energy and its all-round deliciousness. A fantastic addition to our range.
