August 16, 2014 - Drinking great. Plenty left.
June 27, 2014 - Delcious, fresh and young. Lots of added complexity without a loss of zippy-ness. Worth a check if you've got a couple; will hold on for a while if you'd prefer. Damn, this wine is so good - on release, and for years and years.
June 9, 2014 - What a wonderful bottle of wine this is.
It's too bad that we can only find Brooklynguy here on CT these days. His recent note on this wine says it all.
May 4, 2014 - Man, this shows so beautifully. That said, it's 9 hours in when the wine shows best. The nose is subtle and graceful and is unmistakably briny, and there are also leesy, lemony, and floral scents. It's less about intensity and more about focus and clarity, and it's lovely and expressive of place. And it belies the intensity that is here on the palate. The wine is powerful in flavor, very long, with complex mineral notes to complement the citrus and seashell flavors. It's so clean too, just a breath of fresh air. Light in body, absolutely intense in acidity - it bores through, but in a good way. Compelling wine. The color is essentially golden and the wine appears more advanced than it actually is. No shame in drinking this now, especially if you have a few. But this has years and years to go.1 person found this helpful Comments (1)
February 1, 2014 - Rock and salinity and a citrusy freshness. Nothing characteristic of age that I can detect, but it's been a while since I had one. And just as good after a week in the fridge (don't ask why I didn't finish it the first night). A why-don't-I-have-more wine.

(Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre & Maine sur lie Clos des Briords) A lovely nose, creamed thyme, liquid rocks, soapstone and pumice, topped off with notes of yellow pepper and yellow plum skin. Remarkable minerality! Fleshy but sappy, well defined, full of very tangible substance, broad and very mouth-filling, with all that yellow fruit coming through onto the palate too. Great style, purity and rich, fresh depth. Very fine indeed, delicious now, but a wine that will also repay keeping.
