If there is a last stronghold of good value wines in France, it is undoubtedly Muscadet. The region is home to some of the most underrated producers in the country and none more so than Jo Landron. Landron took to form 30 years ago and has done what many thought impossible, make people fall in love with and truly revere Muscadet, the guy now standing as the true Rockstar producer of the region.
Jo's Brut Atmospheres is a secret weapon, if you don't want to pay Champagne prices but you just can't resist the urge to drink truly great French sparkling the Atmospheres is the perfect way to go about it. The wine, comprised of 90% Folle Blanche & 10% Pinot Noir, comes off strictly biodynamically grown estate vineyards through hand harvesting, with vine ages ranging up to 30 years, producing lower yields than even Champagne's average, it sits on lees for 2 years with traditional secondary fermentation taking place in bottle. These are not attributes generally listed for Muscadet producers, or scarcely even most cremants, but here they are, being made by one of the greatest vinous pioneers in Europe today.
