Food Pairings for Sancerre les Boucauds Blanc Claude Riffault
#97 of Wine Spectator Top 100 2012 "On the nose, the wine reveals aromas of white fleshed fruit and citrus. The generosity of the soil has resulted in a wine that is full-bodied on the palate. The fine minerality and acidity gives the wine freshness. It can be enjoyed on its own or with shell-fish or fish dishes..." Winemakers notes "Lime and cherry-almond scents lusciously inform the silken palate of Riffault's 2011 Sancerre Les Boucauds in a fashion that calls to mind Saar Riesling. Accents of mint and stone add interest to a finish of delightful and mouthwatering persistence, even if this displays nowhere near the energy or interactive complexity of the corresponding 2008 and 2010. I would plan on enjoying it over the next 2-3 years. (Given that this is by far the estate's largest cuvee, there will be several - albeit virtually identical - bottlings.)...90" WA 07/12 "#97 of the Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2012: This white is still tight, exhibiting a very chiseled feel to the flint and gooseberry notes. The mouthwatering, rapier finish lets chive flower and fleur de sel notes chime in. Could have some staying power in the cellar...91" WS 09/12
