Jean-Max Roger Cuvée Les Caillottes Sancerre
This blend of grapes from plots in the villages of AmIgny, Sancerre and Vinon fully expresses the stony calcareous “caillottes” terroir it hails from. Fruity freshness, finesse, vivacity, and minerality characterize this wine. It is expressive, combining notes typical of the varietal (rhubarb, broom), floral (hawthorn) and fruit (grapefruit, lemon). Starts off bold on the palate offering dense structure and well-balanced acidity with lemony accents. Lasting finish evocative of fresh fruit.

Villages: Bué, Amigny & Sancerre
Vineyards: Saint Martin, L’Epée, and other famous vineyards within these villages.

How to drink it:
This cuvée may be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif, though it is showcased when matched with all types of seafood – crustaceans, shellfish, and raw or cooked fish. It may also be paired with white meats (poultry, veal) and cheeses - goat’s milk and blue cheeses in particular.
