About Domaine du Carrou

Domaine du Carrou dates to 1950, when the late Maurice Roger began on six acres of limestone-rich soil in Bué. Winemaking, though, was nothing new to him—his family had been making Sancerre in the Loire Valley since the 17th century. Today, Maurice’s son Dominique manages the family vineyard, which has quadrupled in size over the years.

A really pleasant suprise

Being unfamiliar with this wine, we took a chance, and ordered (only)4 bottles. We opened a bottle to have with steamed lobster, and instantly regretted out hesitancy. My family and guests all wanted to know if we could get more. Loved this crisp, clean wine and will, unfortunately, probably drink it all up, greedily, this summer.
Very Good

I preferred the Tois Chenes to this wine, which I found a little too fruit forward at first. However, the second day it showed more complexity, which made me decide to let the rest of the bottles sit a while. No doubt a fine wine, very extracted, but I prefer not to be lambasted with grapefruit - it's more fun to have to search for the fruit through some minerals and a little dry acidity. The jury is still out on whether this SB will will rate "pretty good" or perhaps great a few years down the road.

Sauvignon Blanc

For all of its name recognition and reputation for high-quality plantings and bottlings, Sauvignon Blanc has never been represented in lists or discussions of the spectacular wines of the world. But just because wines made from Sauvignon Blanc are rarely crafted for extended cellaring and don't command staggering sums in international auctions doesn't mean that...
