Although the Claude Riffault property may not carry quite the name recognition of some of the heavyweights in Sancerre, this is quietly becoming one of the most important addresses in the appellation. Claudeand#39;s son, Stephane, is in charge of things at the property these days and has proved to have an especially deft hand with Sauvignon Blanc. Les Chasseignesandnbsp;comes from vines just north of the village ofandnbsp;Sury-en-Vaux, and is named for the shallow limestone soilsandnbsp;that giveandnbsp;the wineandnbsp;its tension and intense minerality. This is textbook Sancerre - racy and bright but with a power and persistence that can surprise given its subtle character.
Yup, that is straight up my acidic alley.
