The Domaine is located in the lands of Saint Cyr en Bourg, next to Saumur. It is a family property that covers 50 hectares. Domaine de Nerleux will charm you with its buildings and especially with its terroirs of tufa, the limestone rock of our region but also an essential component of our underground world. Generous, it has the ability to absorb excess water to restore it at the most appropriate times and thus give wines that are full and supple with silky tannins.
In the 1870s, Eugène Neau, from a line of winegrowers in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg, bought the Domaine de Nerleux to expand his vineyard. He then passed it on to his son Eugene, who in turn passed it on to Robert. In 1936, Robert Neau, just 15 years old, came to lend a hand to his father. In 1974, Régis decided to join forces with his parents on the estate, which then had 18 hectares of vines.
Elisabeth left her job as a teacher and decided to invest herself with her husband on the farm from 1989. Amélie their daughter works in the banking sector, but her roots will remind her of the Domaine. 2010 marks the return to the Domaine d'Amélie. She enrolled the ninth generation of this winegrower family.
She is the first woman at the head of the Domaine de Nerleux. It does everything in its power to highlight the typical nature of our appellations. Amélie also makes more surprising vintages. Often rewarded, they reflect the know-how of a winegrower who is committed to preserving the heritage entrusted to her.
Surrounded by a father and grandfather winegrower, the passion for wine was already strong, indeed "I fell into it when I was a child". When I arrived at the Domaine, I made a new cuvée made with Crémant de Loire: "L'art des Loups". Passionate about fine bubbles, I was keen to make a more atypical cuvée. 100% grapes since without any addition of sugars, liqueur, or even sulphur to the bet, I invite you to discover this extra raw and natural Crémant, subtle and elegant. Internships with Burgundian friends are very good memories and they have been very formative.
The Domaine de Nerleux has belonged to the Neau family since 1870. The estate has been passed down through 9 generations. The young people were able to bring new ideas to the estate and adapt to new technologies, while the elders were able to pass on their wisdom and experience in order to keep a guarantee of quality in all our vintages. Nerleux means "Black Wolves" in Old French. Today, I am thinking of developing wine tourism at the Domaine.
