Description

Domaine Henri Poiron Cuvee 1858 Brut Methode Traditionnelle is a sparkling white wine (vin mousseux) from the Loire Valley made by Muscadet and Gros Plant producer Domaine Henri Poiron et Fils. Made in the traditional method with a secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Owner Eric Poiron took over the running family domaine (then known as Domaine Henri Poiron) fairly recently but the domaine can trace its wine-making roots back to the nineteenth century. Eric is a graduate of the Beaune School of Viticulture and is dedicated to bringing the winemaking lineage and heritage of Muscadet into the 21st century. The estate is located in the heart of the Muscadet wine region near Nantes and has evolved from a small holding of 1.2 hectares in the 1800s to its present day size of 36 hectares.

The family own and carefully cultivate two separate properties: Domaine des Quatre Routes situated in Maisdon sur Sevre and Domaine du Manoir, situated in la Chapelle Heulin. Domaine des Quatre Routes is nestled in one of the finest hillsides between the rivers Sevre et Maine, produces fine, light and fruity wines. Domaine du Manoir can be found in the heart of the Nantes région, in the charming village of La Chapelle Heulin. 

Domaine Henri Poiron Cuvee 1858 Brut Methode Traditionnelle is a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Folle Blanche. Folle Blanche is also known as Picpoule or Gros Plant, which is well-known as a great match for oysters. The grapes come from vineyards in the Loire with silty and schistous soils. After the grapes are pressed, the wine is fermented in glass coated tanks where it is matured for 6 months prior to bottling. The wine then undergoes a second fermention in the bottle and it is then matured for 18 months prior to disgorgement. 8000 bottles produced.
