The Oddbins Take

Steeped in exciting history, this wine is like a really good Brontë novel, or maybe a Dan Brown. Dating way back to 1070, Le Chateau de la Roulerie is a staggeringly beautiful, ivy-clad property that has one of the gently-sloped Loire Valley’s few terraced vineyards. It is thought to take its name from a 14th century knight, Chevalier Raoul. Its more recent history has seen its winemaking facilities return to the Chateau after 20 years, under the supervision of current owner, Philippe Germain. Fashioned 100% from one of our favourite white grapes, this is a bracing, exotic wine that more than does justice to its idyllic surroundings.

Le Chateau de la Roulerie is a beautiful, 42-hectare property, based in the heart of the Layon region, on a siliceous slope with a south/southwest exposure that was built at the end of the 19th century. The Chateau dates back as far as 1070 and it is thought that it was the property of the Chevalier (knight) Raoul, who gave his name to Roulerie during the 14th century.
