Domaine des Tilleuls is located in the heart of Gevrey Chambertin. This name comes from the lime aisle that bordered the house of the Livera family, formerly built for Marguerite de Bourgogne, the latter watch over a small Clos planted in Gevrey-Chambertin Villages.
Wine has always been at the heart of the life of the Livera family since the estate has existed since 1920. It was created by Philippe Livera’s grandfather, who later took over it in 1986. Since a few vintages, he has passed the relay to his daughter Hélène and his son Damien Livera, thirty-year-old and representative of the fourth generation.
The family operates 8.20 hectares, almost exclusively in Pinot Noir (with the exception of 20 hectares of Burgundy Chardonnay) in the appellations Côtes-de-Nuits-Villages, Fixin, Chapelle-Chambertin and Gevrey-Chambertin. Damien Livera manages the Domaine des Tilleuls.
Philippe Livera, following the precepts of his grandfather, took the non-interventionist bias while remaining very attentive to the life of his ceps. This allowed him to keep centuries-old vines. Green harvests are carried out at the veraison as required, the harvest is manual and the entire Livera vineyard is in reasoned agriculture. This means minimising inputs and avoiding ploughing and weeding in order to allow the soil to live. The wines of Domaine des Tilleuls are made using traditional methods: farms in oak barrels, natural yeasts and long fermentations.
Philippe Livera focuses more on Burgundy wines of regional appellation than on the Grands Crus. Above all, he looks for wines typical of their terroirs, well Burgundy, with melted tannins and designed for guarding. The wines of the Domaine des Tilleuls are sought after for their finesse and their delicacies, they are also sparkling wines. The Livera family has worked hard to preserve wines that are identity and representative of each cultivated plot, especially that of the Evocelles in Gevrey-Chambertin, which is quite solar. Very great wines are also made on the appellations Fixin and Marsannay, certainly worthy of the 1st Crus Bourguignons.
