Almost as famous for his wines as he is for his moustache, Jo Landron’s work has helped move the reputation of Muscadet up to new levels in recent years. His vineyard sits on a soil makeup of clay, iron silicate, magnesium, quartz and sandstone. Certified organic since 2002, his approach to biodiversity in the vineyard sees the soils thriving with lambs lettuce and many other treats for the insect underworld that buzzes with life below happy vines. Jo tends to choose harvesting his grapes late to ensure maximum juiciness to complement the mineral profile of the wines. Jo’s wines possess a structure rarely found Muscadet from Loire, making them a good contender for food pairings (and more than just oysters!)
