Shipping calculated at checkout.

Jo Landron is one of the very top producers in Muscadet. He has been completely organic since 1999 and is now certified biodynamic. He uses no chemicals of any kind in the vines, hand harvests, has natural yeast fermentations and ploughs all his vineyards. Amphibolite is a Muscadet, coming as its name indicates from a terroir of amphibolites; very solid metamorphic rocks which give the wine a deep minerality. Landron tries to intervene as little as possible to preserve all the qualities of this terroir in the bottle; manual harvesting, fermentation with indigenous yeasts without any chaptalization. The wine is matured on its lees for 4 months in order to keep all the freshness and energy in the finished product and then bottled by gravity without any filtration.

With some lovely textural padding this year it's an ultra-pure, racy expression of Muscadet loaded with white floral notes and all kinds of citrus underpinned by the minty saline and iodine minerality that is a hallmark of this cuvée.
