2016 Jo Landron Muscadet Fiefs du Breuil

On his visit last spring Jo Landron was very excited by the upcoming release of his 2016 Fief Du Breuil, One of his top lrvel single bvinyard wines, jeh wants it to express terror. It is grown on gneiss and quartz soils We loved it in the past, so we took it it untasted.

We did this week. It did not disappoint, age in tank and barrel had rounded its sharper edges, but left enough acidity to stand up to fish tacos. With time in the glass it showed a wonderfully energetic tension between stone, modulated acid deep fruit, and long lees aging. One regret – we have only three cases – there are no more.

2016 Jo Landron Muscadet Fief Du Breuil- Organic- Biodynamic; Color: very dark gold; Aroma: deep some brightness, flint note; Mouth: soft fleshy, with a bit of bite under a smooth rich good concentration, very nice minerality; a  fascinating interplay between mineral, fat fruit and subdued acidity; Very Good - Excellent 25.99; Mixed Case, 23.39; Case, 22.09
