'Les Chasseignes' Sancerre Blanc Price € 31.50

Claude Riffault Sancerre AC Les Chasseignes 265

Sensory features: Inviting aromas of lemongrass complicated by wet stone and wild yeast. The bright core of lichee and sweet yellow bell pepper is wrapped in flinty minerals. Refreshing, well structured and appealingly balanced, this sauvignon blanc has a long, leesy aftertaste
