The wine cannot be sold as La Landonne, because 100% of the grapes are not from La Landonne. The grapes come from other vineyards as well.
That would be in line with Agnes comment that they don't want the administrative burden of using an AOC/INAO vineyard name. Also means they have the flexibility to adapt or adjust what grapes go into the cuvee based on their own judgement of what fits, needs for volume or whatever...

This is not unique to Levet. This is the same rule every producer in the AOC system complies with.
