Jo Landron and his wife Jocelyn are the wonderful, energetic, creative, honest and downright nice people behind the farming and the winemaking at Domaine de La Louvetrie. Jo is famously photogenic thanks to his remarkable mustache, but really, it’s the sparkle in his eyes that make him such a star in the Loire Valley. That, and his decades long devotion to elevating Melon de Bourgogne to the ranks of France’s noble grapes. Jo oversees all of the farming, and under his guidance the estate has flourished as a certified organic vineyard. This is true of the parcels that produce all of the wines, from his “Domaine” to the single vineyard Fief de Breil. The focus at Domaine de La Louvetrie is the production of distinct Muscadets from diverse parcels. Native yeasts start fermentation and most of the wines will be raised “Sur-Lies” to develop broad flavors and provide a foundation for a long life. 100% Melon de Bourgogne, this wine comes from vines aged 20-50 years. Indigenous yeast sparks fermentation, which occurs in cement tanks. It sits sur lie for 12-14 months before bottling. Fruity, with notes of ripe citrus on the palate. Intense aromas, and a creamy, full body.
