Description

The Roger family descends from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bué dating back to the early 1600s. Jean-Max Roger took over the four hectares left to him by his parents in the early 1970s and expanded the estate. Now, two of his three sons, Etienne and Thibault, work at the estate, which covers an area of 26 ha in Sancerre AOC and 5 ha in Ménétou-Salon AOC. We love the fresh, clean bouquets they achieve and the light but penetrating flavours.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

HVE3 Certified (high environmental value)

Soil: “caillottes” and Kimmeridgian marls.

Vineyard: variable, depending on the age of the vines. –

Exposure: south-eastern/south-western –Commune: Bué.

Age: 40 years or more. Density: 7,000 plants/hectare.  Yield: 40 hl/ha.  Pruning: Single Guyot.

Viticulture: The soil is worked beneath the rows, and grass is grown between them. The vines are disbudded in the spring. Each vineyard parcel is monitored to optimise chemical interventions while reducing them as much as possible.

Vinification: The grapes are pressed immediately using a pneumatic press, and the must is cold and settled for between 48 and 72 hours.  The grape sediment is carefully removed, and the clear juice is heated. Fermentation using indigenous yeasts takes place under controlled temperatures for several weeks to give a maximum aromatic complexity to the wine aged in stainless steel tanks (70-80%) and 400-litre oak barrels (20-30%).  The first racking occurs in January or February, followed by ageing on the lees. The tank-aged and barrel-aged wines are blended.

Bentonite fining removes unstable proteins and polishes the aromas.

Cold stabilisation reduces tartrate crystals. –The wine is Kieselguhr filtered.

The wine is bottled at the estate’s facilities.

Tasting Note

The terroirs of Bué express themselves to their fullest potential in this Vieilles Vignes cuvée. The stony calcareous “Caillottes” give it finesse and elegance, and the marl power and the partial barrel ageing provide it with structure.

Light gold in colour with green highlights. Sophisticated and elegant nose. On the palate, it starts with a delicious sensation of mouth-filling concentration, boasting remarkable intensity and length. It’s a very elegant wine.

Ageing potential: 10 years or more
