The Roger family descends from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bue_. The first written mention of the name dates back to the 17th century. Up until the 1960s, generation after generation practiced mixed farming and animal rearing - the husband would look after the vines while the wife would care for the goats. Jean-Max Roger took over the 4 hectares of vines that his parents had left to him in the early 1970s. With his wife Nicole, they focused on the vineyards and developed the estate to make it what it is today.
The finesse and fruit from the "caillottes" wines are complemented by the power and length of the marls. Exceptional citrus aromas and flavors along with appealing minerality. Refreshingly invigorating acidity. This wine needs a minimum of six months in the bottle in order to express all of its complexity.
