Interview of Mr. JEAN-MICHEL POIRON – Winemaker & Qwner – Poiron Dabin for AsiaImportNews – Exclusive
Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
The Families Poiron and Dabin were winemakers before 1858. Since then, 5 generations of winegrowers worked hard to arrive to this beautiful estate at the door of Nantes. The wedding of Jean Poiron and Thérèse Dabin will give the name of “Poiron Dabin” at the estate. Today, the owners are there sons: Jean-Michel and Laurent. There are 11 employees in the estate.
What sort of wines are you producing ?
We produce the famous Cru communal Château-Thébaud, from the best terroir of the vineyard of Nantes. This Cru, from Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, is made on a thin ground, and on a wonderful underground made by granite and friable schist. We also produce Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie.
