Sebastien Riffault

Riffault's wines are polarizing – definitely not your mom's Sauvignon Blanc!! They are rich and exotic, with wild, funky notes of truffle and spice. Much of this comes from grapes are affected by botrytis, though the wines are dry with powerful acidities. Sebastien says this is probably what Sancerre tasted like 100 years ago.
