BijzonderhedenTERROIR
Clos les Montys dominates the marshland of Goulaine, it is located on a ridge on a north-south axis.
The soil is sandy-silty and rocky, strewed with sandstone. In the northern part, the soil is very superficial, almost non-existent, and luckily it is in these very rough conditions that are found the oldest vines – planted in 1926, 1922, 1917, and 1914. On the south slope, the soil varies from sandy-silty rock to true clay in the parcel called ” La Tache ” on the southwest side of the vineyard. The bedrock is composed of amphibolite and meta gabbro, an igneous blue-green rock which is very hard, coming from the intrusion of lava in the faults of the Armorican massif.

HISTORY
Le Fief les Montys belonged, in 1414, to Jean de Saint-Aigan. There is only an isolated tower remaining from this former seigniorial house.After the Revolution, the property was acquired, about 1810, by the architect François-Léonard SEHEULT of Nantes who built, in 1813, the current château in its ‘directoire’ style. Very well known in the region, one can still admire in Nantes on Héronnière street his building with sculpted figures serving as an architectural support.The house les Montys is registered on the French Supplementary Historic Monument list, and opens its doors, every year in September, for Heritage Days.In 1994, the château and the vignoble were sold separately; le Marquis de Goulaine, a passionate and fascinating man, became the owner and recoltant of the Clos until the vintage 2000.It was in 2001 that I had the opportunity to acquire this wonderful terroir with its rich past.

Clos les Montys, Jeremie Huchet

This is the whole mystery of terroir.

When people visit the vineyard of Clos des Montys, on the top of Goulaine, it is easy for me to explain- and it can almost be seen with the naked eye- the difference of my two parcels, one which has more clay and the other more stones. Therefore, before speaking about terroir, it is necessary to explain certain things and study a little geology because, in this case, I am facing two parcels, in the same place, which are going to give me, without much intervention on my part, two totally different expressions. I complicate even further the information when, in the stony vineyard I decide to isolate about one hectare planted in very old vines (1914).
We see that under the word « terroir », there is a base formed of the soil, subsoil, surroundings, the climate which is a strong influence due to our proximity to the ocean and the Loire.
But without being pretentious, that is not enough. The intelligence of the wine grower, from generation to generation, his sense of observation, the endless walks he will take in « his » terroirs, the maintenance and the total respect for the microbic life of the soil (which excludes the use of chemicals), hand-harvesting, the age of the vine, the way it has been looked after, its replacement after its death, all things to maintain the integrity of the location, there are a multitude of parameters which contribute to the notion of terroir. This is how I was able to locate, with the complicity of my father, my most beautiful parcels, located in the zones of Château-Thébaud and Clisson. All the meaning of the fundamental work of a vigneron, wherever he might be, lies in this inclination.
To observe and to act with reflection and clear-headedness in order to vinify a complex and interesting wine: a living wine.
Then, in this case, the wine grower can say, not without pride, that he is helping to maintain a historical viticultural heritage in wine. And that, at the same time, he has the best job in the world!
