Stéphane Riffault heads his father's estate and has quickly risen to be one of the top five producers to watch in the Sancerre appellation. After training with Olivier Leflaive in Burgundy, Riffault developed a masterful touch with oak that adds complexity, never wood notes. Boucads is produced from vines on Kimmeridgian limestone and sees 50% stainless steel and 50% neutral oak. Concentration and length meet precision and mineral in this elegant bottle.
