    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Les Gras Moutons Cuvée Eden) Marc Ollivier has been producing a Cuvée Eden since the 2005 vintage, always including some fruit sourced from Les Gras Moutons, which has a gneiss terroir. This is the first vintage in which he had enough vines in Les Gras Moutons for it to be the sole source for the cuvée in question. Perhaps not so expressive as the 2009 on the nose, but a lovely style on the palate, very flashy and rich, well focused and with good acidity. Nice minerality. Not quite the vibrant combination of mineral fullness and acidic cut I crave here, but still very good wine.

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Les Gras Moutons, Loire Valley, France) Muscadet has gained prestige in recent years, as demonstrated by the new category of Muscadets de haute expression originating from specific terroirs. Marc Ollivier’s offering, from a parcel in the highly regarded vineyard of Les Gras Moutons, is subtle and complex, with aromas of lemony fruit, minerals, yeast, and fresh-cut hay. On the palate, the wine is crisp and refreshing, making it a perfect foil for food now, but it has an underlying concentration that promises the ability to age for some time to come.
