The story of brown mealy apples. From your childhood.
Jacquere Sansoufrir...free to roam. Smells like that sippy cup of Motts. Tastes like an apple slice at the bottom of your lunch box - browned and oxidized, squirt of lemon, sprinkle of salt.
It should remind you of feather weight Fino Sherry. Dry, lean, saline. Made for all the before-dinner salty snacks I love. — 7 days ago
On this Wednesday, "Hump Day", I have opened the 2019 Domaine Claude Riffault Sancerre Les Boucauds.
On the nose I am getting lime, white peach, pear, melon, gooseberry, nectarine and minerals.
On the palate is good notes of lime, white peach, grapefruit, pear, minerality and some flinty stone.
This is a beautiful Sancerre medium bodied wine with medium + acidity that moves nicely into a long fresh citrus mineral finish. I hope everyone's week is going well as we continue to move quickly into spring. What a beautiful week we have been having with springtime temperatures. Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy the rest of your week. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — a month ago
A week after 2019, we taste 2018. Quite similar in the design. With another year, it begin to express, notes of evolution tending towards Pinot-noir and this slightly truffled flavour, dried flowers. Delicacy.
Une semaine après le 2019, on goûte le 2018. Assez semblable dans la conception. Avec un an de plus commencent à s’exprimer au nez et en bouche, des notes d’évolution tendant vers le pinot noir et ce côté légèrement truffé, fleurs séchées qui apporte à la gourmandise une certaine délicatesse. — 7 days ago
Zesty and herbaceous, the 2017 Sancerre Les Chailloux by Claude Riffault sports a nose of lemon peel, garden mint, limestone, flint, and a touch of tomato leaf. The palate is juicy and vibrant, characterised by Granny Smith apple, high acidity, and a depth of flavour that suggests some (very gentle, and successfull) use of oak.
I’m not a great lover of Loire whites, but this is a very good quality Sancerre that should continue to improve with age. The minimalist label and wax seal makes for an attractive bottle. — 18 days ago
