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. — 2 months ago
Have to admit my mind was blown by what I formerly considered just a “party” wine. Nice dry fruit, great structure, and soft tannins. Excellent with Mother’s Day chicken salad sandwiches on croissants! — 2 days ago
Comfortable herb and strawberry aroma with forest like. Strawberry and plum. When I sip, such aroma is always delivered to my nose. This makes its taste much better. This herb flavor is similar to the one I felt from its grand cru. That’s the style of this winery? Taste is getting thick over time. 2017 @1500, medoc -, 210417-210421 — 25 days 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. — a month ago
