Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine De La Louvetrie Melonix

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
This remarkable Vin de France (thus without vintage on the label) has not only the color of a honeydew melon, it also tastes like Melon de Bourgogne, even so you would probably not call it a classic Muscadet. This is Jo Landron’s very personal, powerful and sensual interpretation of the variety which was once imported from his home region, Burgundy. It is a lovely, well-balanced, succulent, finally complex and salty wine of great purity and expression. Marked by its piquant acidity and mouth watering salinity it is unique in the context of Muscadet. This wine can be considered as natural wine for natural wine skeptics. Don't miss tasting it!

Winery Domaine De La Louvetrie

Region: Loire Valley

Despite being most closely associated with fine white wines made with the excellent Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes which thrive there, the region of the Loire Valley in France also produces several other quality wines. The sub-region of Chinon is highly esteemed for its excellent Cabernet Franc based red wines, packed full of unique character and excellent fruity flavors, and the sparkling crémant wines of the region are adored by people all over the world. The region benefits enormously from the fertile valley it sits in, and the oceanic breezes which blow over the area, cooling the vines and helping them reach full and balanced levels of ripeness. The Loire Valley is an ancient wine region, with a viticultural history which stretches back two thousand years and is stronger than ever today.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
