Sarl des Vignobles Roger

At a lively wine tasting in Argeliers at Bouchons et Tradition, Jerome Roger, vigneron, and exceptionally good english speaker! presented to me his wines - which are at present red or white; but he confided he has begun producing rosé.

At the Chateau du Prieuré de Mourgues, Pierrerue excellent Saint Chinian reds are created - the Chateau du Prieuré de Mourgues - is an assemblage of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre from an average age of 15 year old vines, rich deep reds with the characteristic dry taste of Schiste; and the Chateau du Prieuré de Mourgues "Grande Reserve", garnered from older vines of Syrah and Grenache, with a touch of Mourvedre, to create complexity and subtlety as is warrented in a wine of this stature.

I enjoyed both red wines, but actually fell in love with his Vin de Pays whites, which i had tasted earlier in the evening.

From Domaine des Aspes - the Chardonnay was dry, light, with a delicate sweetness. It would hold its own on a summers day, chilled of course. The Chardonnay Viognier - was too a delightful mixture of the 2 eminent cepages. It gave a slight complexity, but again it was bright light and dry, dancing with colour. For the pure Viognier, again it was a nice surprise, particularly as the schiste terroir, gave the sweetness a drier taste, a slight sharpness. The colour was bright, and fulfilling. All three whites were perfect for fish, cheese, even desserts. They gave an air of being refined on one hand, and on the other a freshness perfect of hot summers, or hot evenings at home or on the terrasse.

Jerome Roger was telling me that he exports worldwide. But come and visit his vineyard if you are in the Saint Chinian area, to taste his gamut of excellent wines
