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). "Cuvée G.C." is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes harvested predominantly in “Le Grand Chemarin", with some material from neighbouring terroirs with similar characteristics. These stoney, clay-limestone based soils known as "caillottes" cover steep slopes that enjoy southerly to south-eastern exposures. Wines from these areas are elegant, lifted and show great finesse. Tasting Note...
Brilliant pale straw colour with a very faint greenish tinge on the edges and watery hue. On the nose grassy asparagus like aromas are followed by some citrus, dried herbs and a trace of mineral. The palate possesses excellent intensity with flavours of grassy herbaceous characters intermixed with some dried herbs and citrus followed by some minerallity on the crisp dry finish. Long herbaceous grassy asparagus, citrus and mineral aftertaste.
