Roilette was the name of the prior owner's prized race horse.
The name "tardive" is misleading and often causes confusion. The grapes were not late-harvested.
The cuvée consists of the estate's oldest vines and the wine always benefits from time, usually a few years, before showing its true potential.
The Clos de la Roilette, a lieu-dit in the village of Fleurie, covers nine hectares of one of the best slopes in the Beaujolais Crus.
The clos has an eastern Exposure, borders the Moulin-à-Vent Appellation, and produces wines that are beautiful when young and have the capacity to age 5-10 years, depending on the vintage.
