Sebastién Riffault is one of our favorite winemakers, crafting old school Sancerre where the Sauvignon Blanc grapes hang on their biodynamic vines longer than with any other winemaker. That way he achieves a balance between overripeness and noble rot (botrytis) that gives the wine a very deep and honeyed flavor. 

The percentage of noble rot affected grapes (+ which vineyards) determines which wine he makes. In Les Quarterons this percentage is 5% whilst others can go up to 50%. This wine therefore resembles the known style of Sancerre most, but it still way deeper in flavor. 

Fresh acidity, yellow apple, minerality and honey suckle; a deeply delicious wine.
