Home > SELECTION > SEBASTIEN RIFFAULT


Sébastien Riffault cultivates his 12 ha vineyards biodynamically and vinification is totally free from SO2 and any other chemicals.

"Étienne et Sébastien Riffault" label has been produced since his father's generation. From the 30 years vieilles vignes on Argilo-Calcaire soil, fermented in stainless tank(3 months) and aged for 24months "Sur Lie". This is a top quality Sancerre in modern style.

On the other hand seems Sébastien expresses much unique style with "Sébastien Riffault" labels. But in fact this is the original style of Sancerre. Sébastien has precisely revived Sancerre a century ago. These wines are made from perfectly mature grapes from old vines and it contains botrytis. Aged in old barrels for long time, and bottled without fining and filtrations.

Its taste is out of standard of today's Sancerre and the wine possesses impressive natural concentration and ripe fruits - Indeed, it is easy to understand why these wines are much sought-after from natural wine bars in Paris and fine and creative restaurants in the world such as "noma". The wine has excellent sensitivity, full of energy and the soils are expressed straightly.

Unlike any Sancerre you have tasted before, but by far the best. Sebastien's wines redefine what we think Sauvignon Blanc should taste like. One of the standard-bearers for the grapes, Sebastien makes some of the most profound expressions of Sauvignon Blanc that exist - a far cry from the zippy, standardized clones that are so much Sancerre today. A meditative, opulent wine, it also has an underlying mineral nerve that roots it firmly in the chalky hills of Sancerre. (from NATURAL WINE / Isabelle Legeron MW)
