Loire Valley - France

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

The ancient wine region of the Loire Valley in France is a perfect place to discover the country's finest examples of white wines, which are made with a highly successful blend of traditional and modern wine-making techniques. Indeed, the Loire Valley has a wine-making tradition which stretches back almost two thousand years, and today continues to be a standard bearer for fine white wines made predominantly with Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes. However, it also produces superb red wines from the Cabernet Franc grapes which thrive there, and plenty of excellent rosé and sparkling wines for which the region is also famous. With almost ninety controlled appellations, the Loire Valley is an extremely important region within France, and the significance of their produce cannot be overlooked.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
