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. Beginning in 2004, two of his three sons, Etienne and Thibault, came back to work at the estate after various professional experiences in France and abroad. His third son, Xavier, lives his passion for wine in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
5 ha of their vines are located in the Menetou-Salon AOC area of production where the first plantations date back to 1981, in the vineyard known as “Le Petit Clos”. This terroir is composed of Kimmeridgian marls (“terres blanches”) covering a south-eastern facing slope. Served at between 8 and 12°C, this cuvée is the perfect complement to the bounty of the sea, including crustaceans, shellfish, and raw or cooked fish. It is also a good match for white meats and goat’s cheeses.
