A fantastic wine from Remi Sedes from the Loire Valley, this is his gamay rosé which is a unique and often wild expression. Gamay is his speciality, and it shows!
Wine profile: wonderfully aromatic, herbaceous and vegetal. For those who want a bit more complexity from their rosé.

Hailing from the Jura, Rémi studied agronomy when he arrived in the area to live with his Nantes-born wife. He worked for a couple of years with Vincent Caillé, and then spent time honing his red winemaking skills in Bordeaux before setting up on his own in 2013. Rémi started with a plot of 20-year-old isolated vines that he leases from local biodynamic ‘grandfather’ Jacques Caroge. In 2017 he added a small parcel of Melon and Chardonnay. The soil is micro granite - which suits Gamay particularly well - with a mix of clay, sand and limon underneath. Gamay is vigorous, the acidity helps to reduce yields, and Gamay on granite will make wine that can age. There is an Oceanic climate, with less rain than the Southern Loire; the River protects the Coteaux d’Ancenis.
Part of winemaking for Rémi is a lifestyle choice; he wants to work outdoors, in the fresh air, and not with machines – his Shire horses are an important part of his winemaking process.
In the cellar Rémi works with minimal use of sulphur (only sometimes added on bottling).
