Description

The story began in about 1945, after twenty years of existence of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. Pierre and Julien Landron, father and uncle respectively of Joseph (Jo) Landron, bought land in need of clearing, then planted vines on it to create the three-hectare family holding. In the early 1980s, Jo Landron and his father, Pierre, began selling directly to customers and exporting their wines abroad. An incident in the vineyard, in which the vines were almost poisoned by weed killer, was the trigger for abandoning the use of herbicides. With treatments like horn manure, silica, and valerian, and stinging nettle and horsetail teas, the estate eventually joined the biodynamic winegrowing movement already followed by other estates in France and abroad.

TASTING NOTES
Showing aromas of dried flowers and dried fruits, this Muscadet seems warmer and more complex in structure and has pleasant hints of bitterness in the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Serve well-chilled (8 to 10°C) with shellfish, seafood, appetizers or mixed salads.
