Product Description

Muscadet's renaissance continues--thanks in no small part to the wines of this tireless, pioneering grower. Jo Landron's La Louvetrie cuvée originates from soils rich in amphibolite, but also sand, clay and gneiss. It remains the Estate's only wine made from a blend of different sites (including younger vine fruit from Landron's top vineyards). It is regardless a blinder of a Muscadet, packed full of juicy, racy fruit and vibrant Atlantic zing. The vines for this release are 15-30 years old and cropped low (for Muscadet) at just 50hl/hectare. It's bottled with a low dose of sulphur after between 8-12 months élevage. More than ever, this is Muscadet's answer to Pfalz Riesling: there's fine texture but also great precision to the zesty, pithy, lemon/lime fruit and complex iodine notes. It's fantastically vibrant and racy across the palate, with oodles of compact fruit and a cool finish that crackles with stony, savoury length. 

""This is the entry-level cuvée, an assemblage from several parcels around the domaine, featuring sandy soils with some clay and gneiss. The vines are mostly young. It has a fine and salty minerality to the nose, dusted over some pretty fruit. A full and plump style to the palate, rich in peach, lychee and perfumed pear, leading into a pithy grip at the end. This is a very good result for a domaine cuvée in this warmer vintage." 92 points, Chris Kisscak, The Wine Doctor
