The Domaine de Nerleux, Black Wolves in old French, has existed in St Cyr en Bourg for 9 generations. This 47 hectares family property has charming buildings dating from the XVII and XVII century, constructed from tuffeau stone. Tuffeau is the limestone rock of the region is also the essential component from their soils. A generous soil, with the ability to absorb excess water and then return it at the most appropriate moment which results in ample and subtle wines with sleek tannins. Combining traditional and modern methods, Régis and Amélie Neau do everything they can to offer wines typical of the appellation but also some more surprising wines. Regularly recognised with awards, the wines reflect the expertise of wine growers who are committed to preserve the heritage that was handed to them.

Tasting Note: Fruity aromas, white fruits (apricots, quinces, pears ...) The palate is supple and velvety with lovely balance
