Jean-Max Roger 'Menetou-Salon'
A fruity wine with citrus notes, rich and full-bodied on the palate with nice vivacity on the finish.
The Roger family descends from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bué dating back to the early 1600’s. 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 too, 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.
