    July 23, 2017 - On a blazing hot summer day, this was absolutely perfect. 2009 is unique in a richer, waxier way, but I found this wine still showed plenty of ripping acidity, brisk mineral and oceanic elements, and lots of tangy fruit. Nose of saline, lime zest, lemon curd, oyster shell. Palate shows this wonderfully rich textural element that plays off this racy acidity, result is great balance and depth even though this is a light/medium-bodied wine. Apricot, orange, lime zest, rocking with these oyster, chalky, sea salty notes, some nougat and honeycomb elements as well. I think I'll hold on to my last bottle for a year or two, but I don't think 2009 is typical in its long-aging potential, but who knows. All I know is this is continually the most dynamic $20 I spend on a bottle of wine.

    April 7, 2017 - Very light gold/lemon in color - crystal clear. Moderate aromas of lemon/citrus but dominated by an intense minerality/wet stones, beautifully perfumed. Full on the palate, with citrus/ unripe peach with great salinity. Fantastic minerality again with medium(+) acidity. One of the best $15 bottles of wine Ive ever had the pleasure of drinking!!

    April 4, 2017 - Clean, light, blazing acidity, great definition and cut, beautiful sea breeze. Classic. No change from 2015 note. Could be right at it's apogee, not sure.

    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.

    (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.
