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.
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 off 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.
