The Roger family comes from a long line of winegrowers from the village of Bué. The first texts that mention the family name date back to the early 17th century. Jean-Max Roger took over the four hectares of vines left to him by his parents in the early 1970s and expanded the estate to its current size, 26 hectares. Beginning in 2004, two of his three sons, Etienne and Thibault, came back to work at the estate after various professional experiences in France and abroad.
Our vines are planed in three main soil types: flint, Kimmerridgian marls, and limestone. It is diversity of these soils that makes our rose Sancerre unique. The name “La Grange Diminere” refers to one of Bué’s ancient tithe barnes. Our ancestors used it for making their wine and today it remains the oldest part of our winery. Direct processing of the Pinot Noir grapes gives this wine its salmon pink color, along with lightness, freshness, and elegancy.
