Claude Riffault Les Chailloux Sancerre 2014
Light and bright gold color. Deep nose of lemon, peaches, crushed rocks and a pretty saltiness. On the palate there is that round and almost fat mouthfeel, there is also acidity, salty and sea shell notes, then lemon, lime and peach flavors. Might feel a little rich, but this is so elegant with a long lasting finish that it can just be good! Excellent (91)
Made of sauvignon blanc from 13 to 40 years old vines. Aged in oak barrels for less than a year. Alcohol level of 13%
Got this wine through private import, but some of his wines are now available in SAQ stores.
