Dominique Salmon’s grandfather created the Domaine in 1897. Dominique took up the reins in 1980. He is now a very experienced wine maker who focuses on making exceptional quality wines. His son Mickael is now working with him, following experience in New Zealand.
Dominique has not only mastered the classical vinification techniques of the Muscadet region, making lovely crisp aromatic Muscadet Sur Lie, but he has also diversified. His Pinot Gris is exceptional. He has planted Sauvignon Gris, as well as Sauvignon Blanc; also Chardonnay and Pinot Noir primarily for sparkling wine.
Perhaps most exciting of all is the new Chateau Thebault Cru Communale, Muscadet's equivalent of Grand Cru Chablis.
