Domaine de Nerleux is located in the lands of Saint Cyr en Bourg, 8 kilometres south of Saumur. This family property of 50 hectares will charm you with its buildings and especially 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 1870, Eugène Neau, from a line of winegrowers in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg, bought the Domaine de Nerleux to expand its vineyard. He then passed it on to Eugene, his son, who did the same with Robert (1st). In 1936, Robert Neau, second of the name, at the age of 15, came to lend a hand to his father. In 1974, Régis and his parents joined forces on the estate, which then had 18 hectares of vines. In 1989, Elisabeth left her job as a teacher to join her husband on the farm. In 2010, it is the return to the Domaine d'Amélie, their daughter, the ninth generation of this family of winegrowers, after an experience in the banking sector. The transmission continues: "I knew I would come back one day". First woman at the head of this pretty estate, she does everything possible to offer you wines typical of our appellations but also more surprising vintages. Regularly 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.
