La gloire du vin de la Loire – 13 Feb 2013 by Jancis Robinson. http://www.jancisrobinson.com/

Domaine de la Fruitière 2012 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sur lie : 15.5 Drink 2013
Blind, I might take it for a Sauvignon, it’s so piercing. Lots of fruit and charm. So immediate ! But a bit atypical.

Lieubeau Vigneron, Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference 2012 Muscadet-Sevre et Maine sur lie 15.5 Drink 2013-2014
Racy and good piercing acidity with lots of fruit. Salty finish. Good shot!

Domaine de la Fruitière, Cuvée M 2009 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine : 15.5 Drink 2010-2013
100% malolactic. Very minerally but quite soft. It’s interesting.

Lieubeau Vigneron, Cru Chateau Thébaud 2009 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine 16.5 Drink 2012-2017
Racy, cool, marine with masses of fruit. Just the right stage of evolution

Lieubeau Vigneron, Cru Chateau Thébaud 2007 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine 16 Drink 2008-2013
Honeyed colour. A little cheesy on the nose but with masses of tight, almondy developed fruit. A little sweet but with bags of personality.

Lieubeau Vigneron, Joseph Gregoire Pinot Noir 2012 IGP Val de Loire 15 Drink 2013
Very pale ruby. Only just discernible as Pinot. A bit chewy on the end without quite enough core of fruit. But give it a few years, and the climate and vine age will probably be just right.

The Domaine de la Fruitiere has been awarded with 2 bronze medals at Concours General Agricole de Paris : Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur lie Domaine de la Fruitiere and Vignes Blanches both on vintage 2012.
