Description

Domaine Henri Poiron et Fils Muscadet Sevre et Maine Monnières Saint Fiacre is a “Cru Communaux” Muscadet, a Muscadet from a specific area which has to be aged for a minimum of 18 months to 24 months on the lees, yields are limited and grapes have to be riper prior to harvest. The younger vintages are lively and delightful but upon aging these fine Muscadets reveal their opulence: they are some of the best wines of the Nantes wine region revealing the differences of terroir.

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.

As mentioned above this is a “Cru Communaux”. There are 10 crus in Muscadet covering an area of 494 acres. The 10 crus are Clisson, Gorges, Le Pallet, Goulaine, Chateau-Thebard, Mouzillon-Tillieres, Monnieres-Saint Fiacre, Le Haye Fouassiere, Vallet and Champtoceaux. This one, Monnières-Saint Fiacre is located at the heart of the region’s crus communaux on A succession of hills rising along the left bank of the Sèvre and a series of knolls rising along its tributaries. The wines of Monnières-Saint Fiacre are fleshy and creamy in texture, with a subtle yet refreshing touch of bitterness at the finish. They deliver aromas of citrus fruit, orange blossom and exotic fruit, often combined with balsamic notes like wax or honey.
