Poissons is a french village, located in the district of Haute-Marne in the Champagne-Ardenne region.

The castle of Poissons


The castle of Poissons hadn't the fame of the castle of Joinville or the  castle of Echenay. It had been only a simple mansion for hunting and harvest seasons.

The former buildings had no character of a fortified castle, with their antique press. The wide vineyard of Pscher (Pechère) belonged to the castle and was alredy planted with pinot variety that gave a subtle and famous wine.
In 1294-1295, the lord Aubert de Poissons called "Civot" that had two sons Aubert and Hugues gave a part of their property to the Abbey of Saint-Urbain.
