Loire Valley

Château de la Roulerie

Organic

The Domain

​​The Château de la Roulerie is located in the commune of Saint Aubin de Luigné in the Loire Valley of France. With the estate dating back to the 11th century and the chateau built mid-15th, Roulerie’s terraced vineyards really come to relevance in a more recent time. In 1996, winemaker Philippe Germain’s father, Bernard (of the Bordeaux Germain-Sancrits), purchased Roulerie from famed chef Gaston Lenotre and they started producing stunning examples of wine. This historic estate is owned and managed by Philippe Germain and his wife Marie: their family has history in the region with his brother Thierry at Les Roches Neuves in Champigny and his father at Château de Fesles.
 

The Style

They are committed to improving the wines in every way possible with organic certification planned for next year and an ongoing programme of vineyard expansion. Philippe has purchased part of the nearby Domaine de la Grande Brosse which adds another 18 ha of vineyard. Les Terrasses is immediately next to La Roulerie and named after the wide terraces on which the vines are planted. Today it encompasses 42 hectares of vines, 30 of Chenin Blanc and 12 of Cabernet Franc.
