Pepiere Muscadet Granite de Clisson 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine & Spirits: Among the grandest, most ageworthy wines from Pépière's domaine, Clisson grows on granite covered in well-drained gravel. Marc Ollivier and Rémi Branger grew a fragrant 2010, seemingly delicate in its leesy scents of pear, apple and tart white peach. Spend some time with the wine and you'll begin to notice how compressed it is, the rainwater freshness of the fruit hiding the firmness of its acidity, the length of flavor continuing on to a lasting memory. A great vintage of Clisson, this is lovely to drink as a young wine, and it will reward after cellaring for a decade. (Apr 2013)

Complex Muscadet from very old vine Melon de Bourgogne vines within the Pepiere vineyard site. Richer and deeper than regular Pepiere Muscadet since it spends more time on the lees.

While granite soil is not typical of Muscadet, winemaker Marc Olivier has plenty of this great soil on his hands. This is a Muscadet from granite soils that's made with wild yeasts and then aged on the lees for 24 months. Firm minerals, subtle fruits and clearly a wine that can be held for years to come.
