(41) Loir-et-Cher

Domaine Merieau is located on the banks of the Cher, in Saint-Julien de Chédon. Between Montirchard and Blois, we cultivate about 35 hectares of vines. They are comfortable on their hills and enjoy ideal sunshine with a South-South-East exposure. The oldest of our vines are 80 years old.

We grow a variety of grape varieties such as Gamay, Menu Pineau, Chardonnay, Arbois or Cabernet. This allows us to offer 15 vintages to Loire wine lovers in red, rosé, white and sparkling wines.

Our cellar is so old that we have never been able to date it! Our most precious juices are aged in oak barrels. It is also the place where we welcome visitors for a tasting.

Our story

At the end of the Second World War, Georgina found herself a widow. It was on her initiative that the estate was created and, with the help of her daughter Paulette and her husband Jean, she developed the vineyard, its cultivation and sales.

Their son, Jacky, took over the estate and began a quest for fame, which he succeeded in achieving thanks to the quality of the wines and his love for the land. All this would not have been possible without his commitment to restructuring the field that is the one we know today.

In the 2000s, Jean-François left his studies in Bordeaux and went to work in the South African vineyard. He then moved to the family estate and rediscovered the terroirs of his native land. He ploughs the soil, harvests by hand and prunes it severely to give a second life to the vine.

He still manages the 35 hectares of land on the hillsides using traditional methods of old-fashioned winemaking. He is aware of the impact of the products used to treat the vine and manages his vineyard in a rational way.

Other little stories

At the estate, you will have the opportunity to taste a cuvée... like no other! Indeed, the bottle named "Georgina Century" honours the one who created the estate. This sweet wine is different from its cousins in Touraine: it is made without added suffering. Don't be surprised if you don't have the chance to taste it, this wine is only produced in years when the harvest is exceptional and allows you to have a subtle and aromatic wine.
