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. This site has always enjoyed a solid reputation emanating from complex and exceptional terroirs.
Since the 17th century, from generation to generation, the ROGER have been producing their SANCERRE wine. The family estate now comprises ten hectares.
Dominique ROGER is passionate. If he takes to the vinification and breeding of his SANCERRE meticulous care of every moment, 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.
To achieve this, we do not hesitate to split the twigs in spring, to thin (eliminate bunches) and leaf in summer. In this endless pursuit of quality, one strives for perfection by selecting clusters one by one on a sorting table, during the grape harvest that is always done by hand on the entire vineyard.
