Eustache Poilasne, Clos des Perrières  

Poilasne, like his father, was a vigneron all his working life. He owned and lived within Le Clos des Perrières, a walled vineyard situated within the village of Savennières. Although he tended his own vines, he also worked as mâitre de chai at Domaine aux Moines and was retained by Madame Laroche when they bought the property in 1981. Indeed, the connection between the Poilasnes and the Domaine aux Moines goes back several decades as it was Eustache’s father who planted the Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in front of the house at Domaine aux Moines in the 1920s. He withdrew from his own vineyard in 1991, selling to Pierre-Yves Tijou at Château Soucherie. He died at the age of 81 in 2004.
