Muscadet Côteaux De La Loire, Landron-Chartier
Region: Loire, France
Grapes: Melon de Bourgogne
Wine type: White
About: Third-generation winemaker Bernard had been working with his brother Jo in the heart of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine area, before moving in 2002 to the lesser-known and therefore cheaper area of Ancenis, (to the North-East of Nantes).
They make wines with freshness and personality; expressing the diverse mix of soils that Muscadet offers – roundness from gneiss, more minerality from schist.
Soft, clean and fresh Muscadet with balanced acidity. The hallmark salinity is here, but this expression is a gentle, endlessly drinkable everyday white.
