Legend has it that “Chene Marchand” or “Merchant Oak” was a place in the past where the sale of wine was carried out under a secular oak tree. But it is more likely the written distortion of the expression “choice of the merchant” which attests to the superiority of the wine produced on this terroir.

The Roger family’s roots in the Sancerre can be measured in centuries, with records showing the family residing in the region since the early 18th century. It was in 1950 that Dominique’s father Maurice started Domaine du Carrou in one of Sancerre’s finest villages, Bué. This high altitude bastion of Sauvignon Blanc boasts all three of the region’s famed soil types: Terres blanches, caillotes, and an enviable percentage of silex. In the vineyards, Dominique chooses to work the soils constantly, allowing the roots to extend into the limestone mother rock. Herbicides and pesticides are never used and the grapes are only hand-harvested (a practice that is becoming rarer and rarer in Sancerre).

In the cellar, only indigenous yeasts are used and the wines are aged in tank to preserve the mineral cut of these privileged vineyards. The dedication put forth by the Roger family has vaulted to the upper echelons of the region. Domaine du Carrou is consistently ranked as one of the top producers in all of Sancerre by La Revue du Vin de France and other French publications.
