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 and got wild. The Couderts took over in 1967 and have since made it truly especial. The farming is done sustainably with minimal intervention showcasing its distinct terroir; unlike the most of Fleurie Clos de la Roilette is rich in Clay and Manganese which adds more structure and intensity to the juice.
