  • TASTING NOTE: "It is a blinder of a wine, packed full of juicy fruit and vibrant Atlantic zing. The new vintage is not dissimilar to last year’s stunner, with generous, zesty, pithy, lemon/lime fruit alongside a ton of salinity. It glides with fantastic vibrancy across the palate, with oodles of compact fruit balanced by a mouth-watering stony/savoury element and a cool finish that crackles with freshness and length. The value on offer here is off the charts." Bibendum
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Jo Landron’s La Louvetrie cuvée originates from soils rich in amphibolite, sand, clay and gneiss. It remains the estate’s only wine made from a blend of different sites (and includes younger-vine fruit from Landron’s top vineyards). The vines for this release are 15-30 years old and cropped low (for Muscadet) at just 50hl/ha. It was bottled with a low dose of sulphur after an élevage between eight and 12 months.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: "Much like the man himself, the engaging Muscadets of Jo Landron brim with life and personality. These finely etched, soil-specific wines represent the antithesis of the bland, neutral, overcropped produce that has sadly become the regional norm. Jo Landron, who the paysan tradition from his father, took control of the family Domaine in 1990. His philosophy—driven by the conviction that the essence of great Muscadet is expressed through the minerality of its terroir—has raised the regional bar so high that until recently only the granite-infused bottlings from the great Guy Bossard rival these Muscadets for the sheer intensity of flavour and distinctive, electric energy. All the vineyards are farmed organically using biodynamic practices. Vines are planted densely (8,000 per acre) to naturally control yields, which are kept to a maximum of 8 bunches per vine, even lower in some cases. Yields stay between 40 and 45 hl/ha – incredibly low by Muscadet standards - and naturally, no herbicides or pesticides are used. Manual ploughing and hand harvesting are followed by a direct, soft pneumatic, pressing of whole clusters. Only indigenous yeasts are used, and after a cool fermentation lasting 15-20 days, the wines are aged in glass-lined temperature-controlled cement vats, before extended lees aging, which helps to give these Muscadets their trademark texture and complexity. At this point, the wines are bottled using gravity flow. This traditional, minimalist approach preserves the natural freshness and minerality that is a trademark of the very best wines of this genre." Bibendum
