Jo Landron: Out of this Atmosphère

Jo Landron: Out of this Atmosphère

“Jo Landron has so tirelessly served as an international ambassador for his appellation that his memorable mustache and Muscadets have become regional icons… if you walk away uninspired from a conversation with this man, then viticulture just doesn’t move you.” David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate

“While some Muscadet vignerons seem to be shifting their focus to new wines from unusual varieties with funky labels and wax capsules, others such as Jo Landron just keep on doing what they do best, which as it happens is turning out some of the most vibrant, textured, punchy examples of Muscadet that exist.” Chris Kissack, winedoctor.com

Much like the man himself, the engaging Muscadets of Jo Landron brim with life and personality. The unique expression of Landron’s wines is the result of the diversity of soil types that are found within his vineyards. “Every soil has its own potential and identity,” says Landron, a logic brilliantly reflected in the wines he bottles.

All the vineyards are farmed organically and using biodynamic practices. His traditional, minimalist approach in the cellar preserves the natural freshness, crackling texture and minerality that is a trademark of the best wines of this genre.

No matter which label (or labels!) you choose, these wines will repay you in the best possible way: delivering depth, purity, terroir expression and sheer deliciousness at remarkably fair prices. These are Muscadets with soul, Muscadets to compete with top-notch Chablis, German Riesling or Sancerre. And, when it comes to the sparkling version, with first-rate Champagne!

Primed for Spring and Summer enjoyment, binding these new releases is a chiselled clarity and laser-like intensity balanced by the allure of pulpy silkiness and lingering mineral flavour. Crowning the offer is Jo Landron’s tour-de-force La Fief du Breil, a captivating Muscadet of muscly depth and finely wrought precision, which reminds the world of the heights, and aging potential, to which Muscadet can aspire.
