The Domaine du Carrou is located in the village of Bue, one of the 14 communes sharing the name SANCERRE in Center-Loire. Since the 17th century, the Roger family has been producing Sancerre wines, currently on an area of 11 hectares. Bue has a solid reputation from its exceptional terroirs, which reveal a strong identity and purity of expression to the Domaine's 7 vintages. Winemaker Dominique Roger is passionate. He takes meticulous care in every moment of the vinification and breeding of his Sancerre, he often repeats his motto "No great wine without grapes of excellence". This is why DOMAINE DU CARROU cultivates vines in a constant respect of the environment and the microbial life of the soil by weeding the plots or by working the soil. The yields are adapted to allow optimum maturity of the fruit.
In this endless pursuit of quality, one strives for perfection by selecting clusters one by one on a sorting table, during the grape harvests that are still practiced by hand on the entire vineyard.
How Does it Taste?
A beautifully balanced Sancerre with a crisp mineral note from a combination of limestone soils and fossilized kimmeridgian shells. This mineral character is complemented by white peach, green apple, pear, blossom and a refreshing acidity gives an elegant balance.
