Around the 1950’s René Poitevin bought the tiny estate of Château Poitevin. His son Georges took over but kept taking care of the parcels at Jau-Dignac-et-Loirac. Today, Guillaume, Georges’ son, is running the estate. Given the great efforts in improving quatlity and giving a modern style to the wines, it was no surprise when it gained the status of Cru bourgeois in 2003.
The wine of Poitevin delivers a nice damson flavour, well integrated to oak. Its bouquet is fresh, with some dark and hints of flowers. Rather supple and well-balanced, the wine is very elegant and it is very much recognizable by its round and balanced finish.
