A crazy good wine, with an equal emphasis on both crazy and good. This is 100% Pinot Noir from Sancerre. Classical Pinot Noir from Sancerre is thin, more rosé than red and quite high in acidity. This because the Loire valley is quite a bit colder than Burgundy. So, Sebastien Riffault, leaves his grape hanging for a longer time to reach optimal ripeness. However, this can result in something unwanted: botrytis, or noble rot. Unwanted for pretty much everyone, except for Sebastien Riffault. Slightly overripe, while remaining super fresh at the same time. An super intense flavor, also slightly raisin-y from the Botrytis. This wine is a banger, by any means.
