    Information about domain Clos des Treilles

    Nicolas Réau settled at Clos des Treilles in 2002. This 7-hectare domain is in the Anjou appellation. The name comes from a 2-hectare Clos that dates back several centuries. Located on a major fault line where the Armorican Massif meets the Paris basin, the domain's terroir is rich with 180 million years of geological history, with rich, complex sub-soils. Nicolas is a former pianist; he decided to give up music in favour of wine, more specifically natural wine. The domain obtained organic certification in 2012; it favours 3-week long macerations and natural yeasts which contribute to the high quality of wines produced. This vigneron is a talented producer who, year after year, produces very fine natural wines.
