Domaine de la Pepiere Muscadet Merci
Right at the edge of Brittany, Domaine de la Pépière is located in the village of Maisdon-sur-Sèvre. The name La Pépière has its root in the word pépie, which means thirst. The whole estate is certified in organic vitculture and is in transition to a biodynamic certification. These cru wines stay on their lees for 2 to 4 years. During the aging, the dead yeast that makes up the lees turns into glycerol and other aromatic components: the wines acquire a round, fat texture, toasted aromas and notes of candied fruit. It is the benchmark style of the estate: racy, crisp, acid- and mineral-driven, with a hint of richness from the sur lie factor, very much indicative of Pépière's granite-based terroir and clean winemaking style. This wine has aromas of tart tangy lemon and mineral brininess.
