 Clos de la Roilette was born out of the pride of a Frenchman upset that his vineyard lost the Moulin-à-Vent appellation status to the newly created Fleurie appellation. The original owner named it after his horse Roilette and decided not to add an appellation to the label. After his passing, the vineyard was forgotten. The Coudert Family took over in 1967 and has since made it truly special. The farming is done sustainably with minimal intervention showcasing its distinct terroir; unlike most of Fleurie Clos de la Roilette is rich in clay and manganese which adds more structure and intensity to the juice. From the oldest vines, which are from 80 years on up, on heavy clay soils with relatively little granite and quite a lot of the iron-like mineral manganese. "Tardive" does not mean that the harvest is late, as is commonly believed, but rather is a reference to the wine's ability and need to age for years.
