Domaine de la Pepiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie la Pepie 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Melon de Bourgogne. Marc releases every harvest's 'sur lie' bottling in several stages. For the last of the 2015's, the label is slightly different, with the moniker of 'La Pepie', to indicate the presence of fruit from other estate's in the wine. 2016 was such a devastating Loire vintage, and no less so in its westernmost segment of Muscadet--in which Pépière was able to bottle a mere 15% of their normal total production--that he needed to extend the 2015's a bit with some help from trusted neighbors. The wine drinks as well as pure Pépière but is a slightly different story than usual, while still seeing its usual long lees time for a sur lie bottling (which is limited to aging not past spring after harvest).
