Quarterons - 2020 - Sébastien Riffault - Magnum

Domaine Sébastien Riffault

A lovely Sancerre, faultless, very aromatic, with exotic notes. On the palate, Quarterons is lively and balanced, a powerful wine with great minerality, notes of grapefruit, and a long, delicate finish. Some gas may remain in the bottle.

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...
