Domaine Michel Redde et Fils


Michel Redde

REGION: Loire Valley
APPELLATION: AOC Pouilly Sur Loire

The Redde family have been vignerons for fourteen generations; the knowledge passed from father to son has given them a detailed understanding of their vineyards allowing them to create highly individual and expressive wines. The domaine's current size and cellar are entirely down to the work of Michel Redde, the father of current owner Thierry. 

La Moynerie covers forty hectares in a prime position in the heart of the Pouilly-sur-Loire region. Clay-limestone soils produce an early harvest and create wines that are rich, harmonious, and that can age. The clay-siliceous soils impart the wines with a distinctive flinty flavor. The priority is on quality, so the vines are pruned very short to produce grapes that contain complex musts and concentrated aromas. The vineyards are managed without the use of herbicides, insecticides, or any other synthetic additives. 

Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats which are airtight preventing oxidation to the wines. This helps to preserve the rich aromas and flavors given to the wine by the vineyard's unique terroir. Some of the wines receive wood aging in barrels of various sizes before bottling which conveys an impression of power and richness but never obviously oaky flavors. All the wines are left on their lees before bottling; this ensures that the wine remains youthful and fresh.

Wine Region: 

Loire Valley

Also known as Garden of France and Cradle of the French due to the slew of vineyards, vegetable farms, and fruit orchards in the region, the Loire Valley is right in the middle of the Loire river. The area is known for many kinds of fruity, crisp wines: rose, red, white, and sparkling. 

The region’s favorable climate – often a midpoint between the southern and northern French climes – it owes to the river, which is cool in springtime and possibly rainy during harvest season. Also, the temperatures of hot summers are similarly mitigated by the river and the breezes of the Atlantic Ocean. 

There are a number of wine regions similarly situated along the river Loire, such as the Atlantic’s Muscadet region, as well as Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre southeast of Orléans.
