About The Wine
Jo Landron makes some of the greatest single vineyard wines in the Muscadet region but his entry level La Louvetrie wine, a blend of sites, is every bit their equal.
100% Melon de Bourgogne (quick reminder that Muscadet is the region, not a grape variety), all sourced from his biodynamic/ organic vineyards. No oak, and no inputs apart from the tiniest smidge of sulphur.
It sings with zing, sea spray and citrus crunch, all with a chalk outline - as though a ripe lemon and a rock oyster had died in suspicious circumstances.
La Louvetrie is a difficult one to translate but we go for 'the lair of the she-wolf'...
About Domaine Landron
The effervescent Jo Landron might be the best vigneron in Muscadet. He certainly has the best moustache, looking like a biodynamic Merv Hughes.
Building upon the family estate steadily extended by his father and uncle, Jo gradually moved his vineyards towards organic sand biodynamics, and the Domaine was among the earliest to receive certification in the region. He is also known as pioneer in bottling single-site, terroir-specific Muscadets, a true rarity.
He releases a range of outstanding whites and sparklings of depth and concentration, graphite-heavy vineyards and tiny yields helping infuse the wines with a rare minerality. An avant-garde, low-input champion of the region.
