Château la Roulerie lies in the heart of the Layon region at the top of a hill that dominates the Layon valley. The Château itself was built at the end of the 19th century, although it is said that the original building was the home of the Chevalier Raoul who gave his name to the property in the 14th century. The estate comprises 22 hectares with the vineyards unusually laid in the form of an amphitheatre of terraces. The region of Anjou is of course best known for its production of sweet white wine, but there are now more and more very fine dry white wines produced from Chenin Blanc. This winery with its trio of dry whites ranging from the immediately appealing Grandes Brosses to the rich and complex Les Terrasses has excellent examples of this. They are all 100% Chenin Blanc. 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 50-hectare Domaine des Roches Neuves is run by Bordelais Thierry Germain and is situated in the appellation of Saumur-Champigny in the Loire Valley. The winery has existed since 1850, and since purchasing the estate in 1991, Thierry has turned it into one of the finest in France. The estate is run strictly along biodynamic lines, harvesting is manual and yields are low. Vinification is carried out only in small batches and the wines are neither filtered not fined.
