    (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.
