MED-FULL BODIED, STONE FRUIT, CITRUS, FLORAL, CREAMY, OAK
Citrus, white peach, a hint of lanolin, and a mineral streak work magic in this lovely, focused Chenin Blanc. It is rich on the palate with lovely soft texture, reminiscent of biting into a ripe summer peach. Subtle hints of herbs interplay and make this wine an educational experience of what Chenin can be.

This is a perfect introduction to the magic that is Domaine de Belliviere. Tantalizing aromas of spicy grapefruit peel, floral mirabelle with delicate undertones of honeysuckle. Slender and incredibly fine, this wine is expressive and charming.

Riffault is the wild man of Sancerre. He lets the terroir speak for itself by letting the grapes ripen further than most, which leads to a richer wine with aromas of orchard fruit and oxidation. Funky and fresh!
