Pepiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Clos des Briords Vieilles Vignes 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

An old-vines cuvée of Muscadet from a single plot vineyard, planted in schist. These are among the oldest vines in Marc's estate (they were planted in 1930) and enjoy a particularly good exposition. While most of Marc's vines are planted on poor, shallow soil with hard granite very close to the surface, the Clos des Briords has a much deeper top soil of clay and silica over a brittle granite subsoil; this ensures excellent drainage in wet years, and better moisture retention in dry summers. Ripening is slower, and the longer hang-time before harvest allows for optimal maturity to be reached. Not yet reviewed; 2014 vintage rated 93 points by John Gilman (View From the Cellar).
