The Roger NEVEU estate is a family property whose history can be traced back to the 12th Century. It is located at the heart of the Sancerre area in the Verdigny district whose "terroirs" enjoy a great reputation. Their love of the vine and well crafted wines was inherited from previous generations.

The original cellar is several centuries old, but following various renovations and extensions over the past 30 years, it meets the latest technical and commercial requirements.

Winemaker's Notes

This unoaked wine has great typicity with well balanced Sauvignon aromas and flavours. An excellent bouquet and round mouth with good intensity, a fresh and fruity taste with a dry finish. Aromas are dominant with blackcurrant leaf, acacia, jasmine and citrus fruits

This white wine is lively and full of fruit , with dominant fruity aromas. An initial crispyness on the palate, rounds off with a rich and well balanced finish. The white Sancerre wines are perfect with fish dishes, and are particularly good with salmon.
