Domaine des Tilleuls: Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine & Loire wines
Founded in 1905, Domaine des Tilleuls is a family owned and operated winery dating back five generations. Today, Daniel, Evelyne, and their children Jérôme and Noémie, perpetuate this history and tradition through their shared passion for wine-growing.
Located on the western side of the Loire Valley, near the Atlantic Ocean, our vineyard is spread over gentle rolling hills and small valleys overlooking our village, on an exceptional terroir of schist based soils with a silty clay bottom, ideally suitable for growing vines. Our grapes are grown in the Pays Nantais vineyards, where cool maritime influences and a long growing season provides a unique environment for our different grape varieties. Management of the vineyard is done in accordance with the best practices of sustainable agriculture enabling the soil to express its very best qualities while contributing to the preservation of our environmental heritage for futures generations.
Thanks to an authentic and shared savoir-faire, we are dedicated to producing high quality wines that define and respect our terroir. Our ambition is to create elegantly-textured Muscadet wines along with premium Loire white wines; each cuvée expressing the full potential of its grape variety and the typicality specific to each vintage.
Our winemaking philosophy is based on a common resolve to continually improve the quality of our wines by emphazing on balance, finesse and complexity through the combination of both tradition and modernity. Ours is a family legacy, with simple and universal values such as sharing, the love of work well done, and authenticity. Our wines are today appreciated and enjoyed by wine lovers throughout France and in several countries around the world.

"Les Vénérables" - Vieilles Vignes
“ It’s the old vines that are behind the concentration of this wine. It is rich, tight and dry with a really crisp texture and strong minerality. The acidity and the great lemon and grapefruit flavors are delicious and refreshing. Give this wine another few months for the best effect and drink from 2018. ” Wine Enthusiast Editor’s Choice 91/100
