The name of this wine is a tribute to Sebastién's wife and means "Rock" in Lithuanian, a clear reference to the limestone soils of this parcel. Plants 50 years old, the grapes are harvested when fully ripe and are found to be attacked by Botryte in up to 50% of the clusters.

In the mouth it is deep, concentrated and opulent. So much richness, however, does not obscure an underlying tension and vivacity that is always perceptible in the glass even several glasses after opening. 

Hibiscus flower, candied citrus, honey and warm hints of hay. A Sauvignon all to be discovered.

From the producer

Sébastien Riffault

I vigneti di Sébastien Riffault si riconoscono subito, ricchi di flora spontanea e fiori, staccano subito dalla perfezione "anonima" dei viticoltori vicini della zona di Sancerre. Il Domaine si estende per 12 ettari, nei comuni di Sancerre, Verdigny e Sury-en-Vaux. Dall’interno della denominazione si cerca di ridare al Sauvignon Blanc il suo volto più tradizionale e storico, dando vita a vini dal forte carattere territoriale, di grande personalità.
