Light weight, typical muscadet aromatics, stunningly brilliant with ideal balance of acidity and intensity, sublime match for oysters, better showing than a bottle last year, still very fresh and youthful.

(Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Clos des Briords) From old vines, about 70-year old vines, on granite. The target yield here was 50 hl/ha but with the rot discarded the eventual figure was closer to 40 hl/ha. This cuvée is due to be bottled at the beginning of May. Pure pear fruit on the nose, which is clean, lightly creamy, with some fresh herbal tendencies. Rather a supple start to plate, full but more tense in the middle, and a more solid feel to the weight and substance of the wine. Quite a correct and upright acid backbone. Still showing a gentle prickle of carbon dioxide as well. Really fine potential here.
