Based in the village of Sury-en-Vaux, Stéphane Riffault (son of Claude) works 33 different parcels in 8 different lieu-dits spread across 4 villages. Within the 13.5 hectares of vines no synthetic material is used and starting in 2017 the property has been certified organic by ECOCERT and biodynamic by BIODYVIN. Having studied and worked in Burgundy (and closely with Olivier Leflaive), it’s easy to see the Burgundian influence in Stéphane’s wines. The mastery of minerality standing shoulder–height with the wood is rarely duplicated in Sancerre.
