Henri Poiron Gros Plant du Pays Nantais sur Lie is made from 100% Gros Plant. Most Gros Plant is not aged Sur Lie, but this one is which just gives the wine more flavour, texture and complexity.

Muscadet producer Domaine Henri Poiron et Fils can trace its wine-making roots back to the nineteenth century. Located in the heart of the Muscadet wine region near Nantes, it had evolved from a small holding of 1.2 hectares in the 1800s to its present day size of 36 hectares. In 1947, the Poiron family were some of the first producers in their region to develop and establish direct sales of their wines via export. Today Eric Poiron, a graduate of the Beaune School of Viticulture, heads the business and carries the fantastic lineage and heritage of Muscadet winemaking into the 21st century. 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. Thanks to quality soil and the exceptional exposure of its vineyard, the wines are fruity and fragrant.

Gros Plant is also known as Picpoule (or Piquepoul and Picpoul) and Folle Blanche.
