Pepiere Muscadet Cuvee Trois Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The perfect match for shellfish Marc Ollivier's hand-crafted Muscadet has extended lees contact (in fact a rarity) giving his carefully-prepared wine the extra flavor body and crispness that makes it so refreshing. In addition 40+ year-old vines hand-harvesting and natural yeast fermentation all add up to a major league soulful Muscadet!

simple, light, and fruity wine that is extremely quaffable. One of the few good wines for under $10

A wonderful find, like a softer Gruner Veltliner. Just the right amount of minerality, light enough for summer, but not afraid of pairing with food. My kingdom for a nice grilled trout to go with this.

If you enjoy Pinot Grigio and Chablis, you will enjoy this Muscadet (different). Can't beat the price! Just the right touch of sparkle. The nose and taste will be pleasantly surprized. Best kept secret in white wines under $15.

Bold and extroverted, this has an unusually ripe fruitiness while remaining firmly encased in a brisk structure, strongly marked by pungent aromas of oyster shells and crushed stones.

The hot new summertime white, Muscadet, hails from the mouth of the Loire River on the west coast of France, making it an excellent choice with any salty snack foods or light seafood dishes (especially shellfish), though it drinks really well on its own. Medium-bodied and crisp, but with a slight creaminess from the sur lie aging, the Pépière is a stellar alternative for Chardonnay drinkers looking for something less oaky, or Sauvignon Blanc drinkers looking for something with a little more kick!

The basic (but by no means simple) Pepiere 2009 Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie is scented with green apple, lime, quarry dust, and a hint of elder flower. Low-key, soft to the touch for Muscadet, but highly refreshing; and tinged with citrus rind, crushed stone, and iodine, it finishes with mouth-watering persistence. I would plan to enjoy it over the next 18 months.

Great, refeshing Muscadet with vibrant minerality. Of course, this is perfect for oysters, but with its good round body, it's also great with light poultry or vegetable dishes. From a Practicing Organic estate.

Light, bright straw. White flowers, lemon curd, orange peel and minerals on the nose. Vibrant, precise citrus and floral flavors are underscored by zesty minerals, which add clarity and tangy lift. Pure and brisk on the finish, which repeats the orange note. This surprisingly approachable wine reminds me a bit of chenin blanc.
