NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 straw yellow with fine, persistent perlage;
👃🏻 on the nose it is fruity and fragrant, characterised by beautiful mineral notes together with others centred on yeasts and bread crust;
👄 on the palate it is dry and fresh. The excellent savouriness is combined with a pleasantly bitter finish.
This Extra Brut goes perfectly with fish and land starters and is simply perfect with anchovies and sardine terrine. For a vegan solution, try it in combination with raw vegetables.

YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
We are in the Loire, a region legendary for its wines and castles. In the Loire Valley, we can speak of viticulture from the 5th century BC, thanks to the Romans who founded Paulica Villa, today's Pouilly-sur-Loire, and planted the first vineyards in Saumur and Sancerre. The climate is very varied: on the coast, temperatures are milder, humidity is good but sometimes dangerous spring frosts occur, while as you move inland, the climate becomes more and more continental, with short, hot summers, colder winters and increasing temperature ranges.
The soils are also very different from one area to another: they range from granite mixed with sand in the Muscadet territory, to red schist and slate in the Anjou territory, to gravel and sand in Chinon. And above all to the chalk of Saumur and Vouvray, which gives wines rich in minerality, and the clay and chalk of Sancerre and Pouilly. Grape varieties such as melon de Bourgogne, sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc, chasselas, gros blanc, cabernet franc, gamay, grolleau and cabernet sauvignon are grown here.
The history of Domaines Landron began around 1945. At that point, Jo Landron's father, Pierre, and his brother, Julien, gradually made wine-growing the main activity of the family's smallholding, which at that time had only three hectares of vineyards. From 1950 to 1975, they converted land left uncultivated during the wars into vineyards, exchanged and bought land, building a company with a precise identity and animated by extreme care, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, today devoted to biodynamics.
The richness and originality of their vineyard lies in its diversity and richness from a geological and microclimatic point of view, which allows them to offer a range of wines that are varied and of great quality.
