    June 7, 2020 - Full yellow. Lemony, stony goodness with unusual amplitude and mouth feel for Muscadet. Enormously impressive for a $21 bottle at age 13.

    Just as fresh the second night-amazing stuff

    April 19, 2020 - excellent, but a bit more linear than what I had expected. might even improve.

    second night: put on a lot of weight and depth. just terrific.

    February 1, 2020 - Corked magnum. Damn, this has been such a towering version of this wine in the past. Oh well, hopefully someone will share a bottle with me one day as I'm out.

    June 18, 2019 - Full yellow now. Lemony, stony, fantastic texture and palate coverage for a Muscadet. Maturing but still going strong. Every time I taste it, I think of what a great substitute it is for much higher priced Premier Cru Chablis.

    April 13, 2019 - Wine Tasting Group - No Theme - Apr. 13, 2019 (Classic Dallas): PnP. Chalky rocks and stones with grapefruit, herbs, and a hint of honeysuckle. Again, the mouthfeel is creamier than in its youth but still with excellent, lively acids. Excellent depth. Really get a sense of the granite that the grapes were grown on.

    (Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Granite de Clisson) This cuvée was harvested at 45 hl/ha, and has spent two years (with bâtonnage) on its lees which is outside the stipulated limit laid down in appellation regulations for placing the terms sur lie on the label. Madness! A lovely expression on the nose, and on the palate a fine but deep character, beautifully composed, broad and very mineral. The texture is impressive for the appellations, nicely balanced out by plenty of vivacious acidity. This is the business!
