    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre & Maine sur lie Les Gras Moutons Cuvée Eden) This cuvée bucks the trend at Pépière; whereas most are granite, this comes from vines planted on a south-facing site in the commune of Saint Fiacre characterised by gneiss; as a consequence it always shows a different style. The yield was 50 hl/ha. This was bottled in August 2011. A very open and expressive nose here, stylish, showing nicely intertwined substance, superficially it has a soft style, gentle and unprepossessing, but with a building vibrancy and mineral core coming through from underneath. This is really appealing but harmonious and not challenging.

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre & Maine sur lie Les Gras Moutons Cuvée Eden) This wine represents a gneiss terroir, whereas the other cuvees are mostly granite. This should be bottled at the beginning of September 2011. A very minerally tone on the nose, with an effusive, rather volcanic feel to it. On the palate this is supple and stylish, very expressive, open and relaxed, but showing lots of zesty, linear, tingling mineral structure. Just beautiful, yet very accessible thanks to that very relaxed minerally vein.
