Located between Angers and Nantes, this family-run estate in the petite village of La Pommeraye enjoys a particularly warm microclimate, which helps to push grapes to perfect ripeness, even in cooler years. Serge Roullier and Gilles Musset combined their family estates on the banks of the Loire River in 1994, benefiting from three generations of “savoir faire” on both sides. The Loire’s native Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc have pride of place here; from fruity Anjou Rouge to delicately aromatic Anjou Blanc (not to mention a seductive moelleux), wines are fermented and aged in tank to preserve every bit of fresh, ripe fruit.
