Sancerre Les Boucauds Claude Riffault
This summer has been a scorcher, and we have the perfect solution to beat the heat: Sensational Sancerre!
When the temperatures spike into the 90s, all I care about are clean, crisp wines – and my go-to refresher is Sancerre. The Kimmeridgian soil and climate of Sancerre are perfect for producing vibrant, crisp and clean Sauvignon Blanc rich with minerality and racy acidity.
A Zachys favorite, the Sancerre Les Boucads from Domaine Claude Riffault, landed in-store this week. Claude Riffault is recognized as a master of the Loire Valley producing balanced and driven wines that are full of expressive varietal character, earning 90+ points from Wine Spectator and The Wine Advocate. The Sancerre Les Boucads is marked by an elegant balance of minerality and acidity, displaying ample citrus fruit and tangy depth. The perfect wine to kick-back and beat the summer heat.
"Clear and bright, its lime, white currant, and grapefruit suffused with chalk and tinged with citrus zest, pear skin, and salt, this displays such purity and ripeness that a nearly sweet impression is engendered on its silken palate, yet at the same time one of animation, invigoration, dynamic interplay and refreshment...92."

Now’s the time to secure your case. I recommend acting fast, the heat is here to stay all summer long but I can't guarantee this Sancerre will be.
