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!

Additional Information on Domaine De La Louvetrie Melonix

Winery Domaine De La Louvetrie

Region: Loire Valley

Within France, the one region most closely associated with fine white and rosé wines is surely the Loire Valley. With over eight controlled appellations, and a relatively large expanse of land covering this wide valley, the Loire Valley is an ideal location for wineries wishing to produce large quantities of excellent quality vines for their wine production. Indeed, this region has been associated with excellent white wines for over a thousand years, with it once being the favorite wine region for the crowned heads of England, France and beyond. Today, it produces a wide range of white wines, and several rosé and red varieties also. It is also widely celebrated for being home to some of France's most lively and fruity sparkling crémant wines, which more than match those produced in nearby Champagne.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
