Domaine Sébastien Riffault

Auksinis - 2016 - Sébastien Riffault

A wine from another world, as uncompromising as it is generous. With notes of citrus, honey, apricot, and tea... A surprising palate, unusual, enjoyable, with length and minerality. Harvested mid-November with 17% potential alcohol, very little residual sugar now remains... Auksinis means “late” (as in late harvest) in Lithuanian

A Sauvignon cuvée from a 1-ha parcel planted on a clay-limestone soil, located in the commune of Verdigny. The vines are 50 years old and the yields quite low, around 20 hl/ha. As for the vinification: 3 months of fermentation in old barrels, including malolactic fermentation, all with natural yeasts. No sulphur is added – during vinification, maturation, or at bottling. Matured 36 months in old barrels on its fine lees, and bottled without filtration. The estate is certified organic and biodynamic by DEMETER.

Sébastien Riffault

Sébastien Riffault, look no further, it’s him, the 100% natural winemaker in Sancerre. His estate, Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault, is located in Sury-en-Vaux. There Sébastien works his soils with horses, uses zero chemicals in the vines, and farms biodynamically. If is approach recalls that of Alexandre Bain, it’s perhaps not surprising to know the two are not only neighbours but close...
