About Jeremy Choquet
A new producer has also been born in the Loire.
Jeremie Choquet was born on June 9, 1983. In 2009, after graduating from an agricultural school in the beautiful town of Roche near Tours, I worked in a brewery for a year with Pascal, a friend of ThierryPuzelat who practices BIO in Angers.
From 2010 to 2014, I was preparing to make wine while working at a meat-related company called DomainedesPinsSoingenSologne.
In 2015, I was working on a 15ha field at a nearby winery, Domainedela Gaudronnieire. Jeremy will borrow 6 ha of the field owned by the owner. And from 2015, I made it a complete bio. 1.6ha PinotNoir, 0.80haCot, 0.40haGamay and from 2019 rented 2.3ha SB.
His wife, Blandine Floch, was born on September 17, 1986 in Loire. After graduating from brewery school in Amboise, he worked for Thierry Puzelat and Les Vins Contes, and the two met in 2015. And we will make wine together. The vineyard work is mainly done by Jeremy, and the vinification is done by Blandine. She has a solid background in oenology and has experience working with some of the top producers of natural wines. But more than that, they are very sensitive and have made great wines since their first release in 2018. I am very surprised.
I planted PinotNoir in 2010 and 2015 and have been building it since 2018, but her technique seems to be better. My field is still a baby, but I can't believe I made this kind of wine from the beginning... I even remember the jealousy (laughs) Loire is not Burgundy, so it's hard to find a PN, but her PN. is close to my Loire PN. Recently, more and more wonderful female brewers are born, but maybe brewing is more suitable for women. A baby boy was born 8 months ago. In the fall of 2019, I brewed while holding a baby. She is a really strong woman. I'm looking forward to seeing how it grows. Production is still small, 50% in France and 50% in exports to only three countries: Finland, Japan and the USA. We plan to gradually increase the production volume.
