    May 19, 2019 - I enjoy the roundness and more integrated flavours that aging gives muscadets. This was drinking really well now, with aging also adding richness, but of course the acids and minerality are still there in the background (A-).

    April 13, 2019 - Wine Tasting Group - No Theme - Apr. 13, 2019 (Classic Dallas): PnP. Honeysuckle, tart apples, fantastic levels of minerals, salty sea spray that ends on a savory, herbal finish. The wine has rounded out to give a more creamy mouthfeel than the younger 2017 Briords but still with excellent acids. My favorite of the night.

    November 9, 2018 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -translucent light gold
    -faint apple wet stone
    -med acidity lends a tangy note to the med- weight mid-palate with sappy apple faint honey and a haunting ripe yellow fruit element on the moderately long finish
    -still quite fresh, very good now with no sign of fading, remarkable how well this wine can age

    September 16, 2018 - Chatham. So good. Plenty of salinity and acidity for oysters and the relative fullness of the vintage. A good butnot great vintage that keeps getting better.

    September 12, 2018 - From memory, a good bottle - as expected - crisp and tasty without flourishes, what you look for in these wines. Drank over several days, and the last glass was the best - the characteristically tightly-wound Muscadet exterior relaxing to show its surprising depth and complexity as it approaches maturity. The potential for development of these wines, and their longevity, never ceases to catch my attention, whatever the headline conditions of the vintage are.

    (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.
