We're talking to you about his Winery
Rémi Sédès is part of this generation of young winegrowers who have honoured the Coasts of Ancenis near Nantes. Rémi has a great experience of red wine making in the Bordeaux region and offers very beautiful Gamay on a granite terroir.
Rémi is originally from the Jura, where he has a few winegrowing cousins at Château-Châlon, but having always lived in Paris, in his youth he was destined for serious agronomic studies, but the frenzied rhythm of the prepas took him off the rails. He then opted for what he himself describes as a bohemian life... As an accordionist, he slipped into a small group from the East, Les Tontons Zingueurs. You can guess how much these moments developed in Rémi, a great sensitivity and a taste for encounters that count. In 2004, he turns the page and begins to take an interest in wine. He then left the North, and headed for Libourne. He learns and trains in the vineyards, often driven in conventional in St Emilion, Fronsac, in the Entre-Deux-Mers and finally in the Côtes de Francs, at Château Le Puy. Other encounters bring him to Nantes in 2010 and he then works for two years at Vincent Caillé, in Monnières, where Rémi really discovers organic.
|One thing leading to another, he builds his desire to settle in the region. He sets the bar quite high, since it seems obvious to him to practice organic viticulture and also opts for animal traction as soon as he takes over with his mare Tocade. It was Jacques Carroget, an almost inescapable producer of natural wines in the Côteau d'Ancenis in Anetz, who then proposed to him to take over 2.5 ha in the commune of St Herblon, in the Coteaux d'Ancenis, once very famous for its Gamay. The vines of Winery are thus composed of two small islands. The first one will be taken over in March 2013, young teenage gamay vines, in great shape, according to winemaker, on a micro-granite terroir. The second one of 1.5 ha of old vines, about fifteen kilometers away, on the Oudon side, on a beautiful hillside in Muscadet-Coteaux de la Loire. To produce his first vintages, he was lucky enough to find a place in the heart of a neighbouring hamlet where he was able to install his vats and which he shares with a friend who is an organic arboriculturist.|
