Domaine Sébastien Riffault

Akmèniné - 2016 - Sébastien Riffault

A Sancerre with skin-maceration – non-conformist compared to your typical strict and acidy Sauvignon, opening with a nose of apricots. The palate is saline, with rich structure, and a seductive and slightly smoky finish.

If is approach recalls that of Alexandre Bain, it’s perhaps not surprising to know the two are not only neighbours but close...
