  • Produced by the affable Philippe Germain, from his family estate in Layon, the biodynamically farmed, hand-picked grapes for Roulerie's late harvest (10% botrytised) Chenin Blanc are fermented and aged in 600 liter, 2-3 year old barrels for a year. The Germain's purchased the chateau from the estimable pastry chef, Gaston Lenôtre, in 1996 and since then, things have been as sweet as cake.
