The Roger family have practised their trade in and around village of Bué since the early 17th century. Jean-Max Roger took the reins in the early 1970s and expanded the estate's Sancerre holdings from 4 hectares to its current 26. Beginning in 2004, two of his three sons, Etienne and Thibault, came back to work at the estate, ensuring this fine maker continues as a passionate, quality focused, family business.
The family's vineyards within the Sancerre appellation are located in the communes of Bué, Sancerre, and the hamlets of Amigny, Crézancy and Vinon. These plantings include three of the most famous vineyards - Le Grand Chemarin, Le Chêne Marchand and La Poussie - made up of “caillottes” (small calcified stones) “terres blanches” (maritime lime and clay soils like those found in Chablis) and some "griottes" (softer calcified stones).
The “C.M." cuvée is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown predominantly in Chene Marchand, with smaller parcels from La Cote and La Poussie. The varying types of soil: “Caillottes” and “Kimmeridgian Marls” combine terroirs to contribute both complexity and finesse to this cuvée. The “caillottes” give the wine its floral and fruity notes, along with its lightness and freshness while the “terres blanches” provide structure, richness and power.Brilliant pale straw colour with watery hue. The nose displays good intensity with scents of herbaceous grassy characters, gooseberry and citrus emerging followed by some dried herb and mineral end notes. Refreshing palate flavours of citrus, herbaceous grassy characters and gooseberry followed by a crisp minerally finish. Long aftertaste of citrus, herbaceous grassy gooseberry and mineral.
