White wines from the Loire’s Anjou
appellation are made mostly in a crisp, dry
style from the versatile Chenin Blanc grape.
What You Need To Know
In France, any old wine estate can
call itself a “château ,” even if the grandest building on the
property is a cement garage. Château de la Roulerie, on the other
hand, is the real deal—an elegant, classically styled home set on
54 acres in the Loire River valley. It even takes its name, according
to lore, from a knight who owned the estate in the 1300s. Owners
Philippe and Marie Germain have spent the past decade
rehabilitating its vineyards (now farmed organically) and refining
its wines. Originally from Bordeaux, Philippe comes from a
winemaking family. He shows a deft touch in this oak-free, entrylevel
Chenin, which gets its creamy texture from aging on its
spent yeast (called “lees”).
Bright, minerally pear
and honey scents.
Crisp and light, with
pineapple and quince flavors.
Zesty seafood and
poultry dishes; salads
and salty cheeses.
