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 Deux Grives is a wine that expresses true harmony of varietals. Viognier lends punchy stone fruit aromatics whilst the Marsanne adds refreshing acidity and liveliness. Truly mouthwatering and delicious. Gold and bright in colour. On the nose, candied apricots and peaches with notes of honeysuckle and lemon peel. Full bodied with a long refreshing finish.
