Crus

Our Cru wines come from the historical and geographical heart of the Muscadet appellation area. These finely crafted dry white Loire wines are produced from exceptional plots and organically farmed old vines, using hand harvested grapes, natural yeasts and extended lees ageing. These iconic Muscadet are acclaimed by the press and served in some of the best restaurants in France and around the world.

We could have chosen a Cru Clisson with a candied citrus nose and full palate, but Famille Lieubeau also lovingly cultivates some very old vines that give a Cru Château-Thébaud with distinctive finesse and precision. Thirty-six months of lees ageing reveals notes of anise and toasted almonds. Stéphane Davet, Le Monde

Plot Selections

Emblematic plots of Melon de Bourgogne vines are cultivated with respect for nature and their wines patiently aged on lees to produce superb Muscadet that are ideal for ageing and pairing with food.

Two brothers and a sister are currently restoring Muscadet’s glory in a classy village style. The new generation are among the greats of Muscadet, thanks to their winegrowing methods, plot selections and precise ageing. Denis Hervier – Bettane et Desseauve

The Classics

A range of fresh, fruity and elegant varietals illustrating the beautiful diversity of the Loire Valley. Wines ideal for sharing with friends, on any occasion.

The Loire Valley makes the quintessential springtime wine. A selection from the ever-reliable Famille Lieubeau illustrates this style. Shows just how satisfying these Atlantic whites can be! Richard Hemming MW, Jancis Robinson

Voyage Extraordinaire

We had fun imagining a new saga for the ‘Voyages Extraordinaires’ of the literary genius and inventor of science fiction Jules Verne, as if he had been inspired by the wine of his home town. A collection of three labels (for the same wine) takes you on a ‘voyage extraordinaire’ to rediscover Muscadet.

Famille Lieubeau pays tribute to Jules Verne, the literary genius of Nantes, with this very nice Muscadet. It’s delicious, clear-cut and mouthwatering with a touch of salinity. And it’s fun, too! Philippe Lapeyrie, TVA Quebec

La Fruitière

The vineyard of La Fruitière is so named both for the intense fruitiness that has always characterized its wines and its former role as a vine nursery. Its vines, which are cultivated with respect for nature, produce fresh, fruity and saline wines that are stunning on their own or with food.

I bet that each advanced sommelier would love Fruitiere wines, since there is nothing better with Atlantic or Pacific fish and seafood, at least not at these prices. Stephen Rheinhardt – The Wine Advocate
