The Roger family descends from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bué. The first texts that mention the name date back to the early 17th century. Jean-Max Roger took over the four hectares of vines left to him by his parents in the early 1970s and expanded the estate to its current size. Today, the estate covers a surface area of 26 ha in the Sancerre AOC area of production which is located along the Loire River. It also includes 5 ha of vines located in the Menetou-Salon AOC area of production where the first plantations date back to 1981. White wines are made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes whereas reds and rosés are made from Pinot Noir grapes.
Crafted with grapes grown in ancestral plots in the village of Bué, this wine has shaped the tastes of several generations of our family. It is the genesis of our estate. Bué’s stony, calcareous “caillottes” yield a wine that is all elegance, finesse and unctuousness. Notes of citrus and white flowers complement ripe fruit flavours. Minerality and freshness shine throughout the tasting experience and contribute to a long, flavourful finish.
This cuvée is showcased when paired with all types of seafood – crustaceans, shellfish and raw or cooked fish.
