2007 Louvetrie (Jo Landron) Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Amphibolite Nature

SKU #1041503

Muscadet as a simple, neutral, quaffing white? Not this one! Jo Landron is one of the very top producers in Muscadet. He has been completely organic since 1999 and is now on the way to being certified Bio-Dynamic. He uses no chemicals of any kind in the vines, hand harvests, has natural yeast fermentations and plows all his vineyards. We are very pleased to be importing these wines directly from Jo, making these some of the greatest values in the store. This cuvee is vinified with a very short time on the lees, without chaptalization, making this a super fresh and lower alcohol wine perfect with fresh oysters or as an aperitif.

While Jo Landron’s other muscadets are very intense and mineral, this one is bottled earlier, with minimal time on the lees. It is soft, juicy, bright, tangy and so incredibly pure tasting. Also certified biodynamic, made with natural yeasts, a bonafide "‘vin naturel." Always a hit at parties, ever popular with the ladies (and the fellas), and just a no-brainer as far as I’m concerned.

Additional Information:


Melon de Bourgogne

- A white wine grape that originated in Burgundy, Melon de Bourgogne has, sadly, essentially vanished from that region. But fans of the varietal need not despair; its virtual disappearance from this pricy zip code has not prevented it from thriving in the Loire Valley, where it is made into the affordable, zippy, mineral, citrusy wines of Muscadet that pair so well with oysters. The best of those wines come from the region Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine. It is sometimes simply referred to as Muscadet.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
