    August 6, 2016 - Consumed over two nights. Overall, a light and elegant wine. Sea salt, minerals, lemon zest... I can't quite decide if the acidity is correct... at moments it seems slightly flabby, but then at others, the lemon acidity seems to zing! Drink now.

    June 12, 2016 - Very pale in color almost like water. Smells of minerals and the sea. Light, balanced and beautiful palate of minerals, sea water and lemon. Drinking very well with time to go.

    November 23, 2015 - Drank this bottle over two days. Moving past its slightly shut-down phase and into young maturity, where acidity is well-integrated with general body, minerality, and iodine flavors, but depth and pungency aren't yet fully on display. The texture is smooth, seamless, and pleasing. A fine wine which may show more overt complexity in another year or three, but is a pleasure to drink now with a good meal.

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Clos des Briords) As In the glass this wine has a pale yet shimmering hue, and aromatically this is an absolute classic, and immediately puts to bed any notion that this vintage - despite any concerns I may have raised in my Loire 2009 report - might yield only atypical, undrinkable, soft and fuzzy wines. There is salt-brushed fruit, quite rich yet still so evocatively Muscadet, bright and minerally, with scents of lemon, lime and green herbs. There is a similar purity on the palate, which has an immediate confidence, bright and increasingly defined and incisive with subsequent mouthfuls. The acidity has a forthright and crunchy style, with great minerality; it keeps a wonderfully pure and focused style, despite it showing richness and a fine weight in keeping with the warmer vintage, although it is by no means fleshy or over-the-top, and it all culminates in a delectably bitter finish. This is brilliant wine - I love it!

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Clos des Briords) From old vines, at least 80 years of age, in a 3-hectare plot with a granite terroir. The nose here is very open and expressive, the palate attractive with plenty of good fruit and a fresh and vigorous style. Nicely balanced. Hugely superior to the two domaine wine samples tasted above.
