2021 Sancerre Les Chailloux, Domaine Claude Riffault

2021 Sancerre Les Chailloux, Domaine Claude Riffault

Cellar Circle Exclusive

Stéphane Riffault grows in stature with every vintage, and is now unquetionably one of the most exciting producers in the appellation. His 2021s are thrilling wines. Chailloux is the local Sancerrois name for flint (more commonly known as silex), and this parcel is tucked up in the north-east of the appellation where this soil type predominates. It has a northwest aspect and is shaded by a large forest. Flinty sites are often a little warmer, but this one keeps cool, and produces profound acidity. The 2021 is extremely powerful, with exceptional acidity and length. Chapeau.
