One of the most celebrated winemakers, Sebastien Riffault has gained a cult-like following with atypical golden hued Sancerre wines that are worth geeking out on.
In the vineyard, Sebastien follows organic and biodynamic principles and late harvesting with a touch of noble rot - no fertilizers, low yields, hand picking and even horse plowing.
