"The 2014 Sancerre la Noue has a clear, fresh and very refined bouquet of ripe red berries along with chalky flavors. Medium to full-bodied, this is a very elegant, finesse-full and highly delicate Burgundian Sancerre with a lovely purity, a silky texture and fine tannins. A remarkable wine and a serious alternative to the finest village wines. Drink: 2018-2024. 89 points.

It is always exciting to taste the wines from Stéphane and his father Claude Riffault in Sury-en-Vaux, northern Sancerre. On 13.5 hectares of vines (of which three hectares are dedicated to Pinot Noir), they select six different crus according to the geology of each plot, which gives the wines their special character. The white 2015s are enormously clear and pretty fruity, if not charming rather than sophisticated; they should find a great number of devotees easily."
