Famille Lieubeau Muscadet Joseph Grégoire Lieubeau 2019
One of the more unique backgrounds, the Lieubeau family came to be by fate. In 1816, Joseph Grégoire Lieubeau, had been left on the steps of the local hospital in Nantes. Not knowing his real name, those who found him blessed him with a fortunate name, meaning “beautiful place”. He was raised by a local family who happened to be grape growers, and years later he eventually established his own domaine. Today, it is run by his descendants Pierre, Chantal and their children François, Vincent and Marie. They produce some of the most polished wines in the western Loire, with a focus on Muscadet, their region’s flagship wine. Their Joseph Grégoire Lieubeau range is a tribute to their family’s founding father. The 2019 Muscadet offers up a fresh, easy palate of pear, gunflint and a tinge of spice.
Robin says "A well-priced Muscadet that would make a refreshing apéritif, accompaniment to seafood or picnic wine. Closed with a screwcap making this wine a particularly good traveler. No cork screw needed! "
