Coquille de Mer, Vermentino

If you’re a Sauvignon Blanc fan, you really need to try this wine. Vermentino from the south of France – so easy drinking and utterly delicious! Refreshingly fruity it makes for delightful drinking especially on a warm summer’s day.

Xavier Roger’s roots were firmly in the vineyards of Sancerre in the Loire Valley. Son of Jean-Max Roger whose 34ha domaine in the village of Bué, just south-west of town of Sancerre, is renowned for its production of high quality, Sancerre, Menetou-Salon and Pouilly Fumé. However three is a crowd, and with his brothers Thibault and Etienne working at the family domaine, Xavier set out on his own and made his own way.

Mastering the nuances of Southern French varietals and combining traditional as well as innovative winemaking techniques, Xavier Roger wines are a superb example of the quality that is now being produced in the South of France.

The Coquille de Mer is pale lemon in appearance with citrus, apricot and gentle floral aromas. . Ripe peach, and tropical notes on the palate. A fruity easy drinking style with good, balanced acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
