Steely, crushed oyster shell, and lemon oil aromatics. Tons of acidity...sharp. Lemon juice over limestone on the palate with a touch of grapefruit. Even some fresh squeezed lime and maybe some light cheese? Needs food...like oysters!

Soft but lean, a beautiful and polished bottle. Clean, fresh and weightless

Classic. Balance of clean and crisp tart fruit, sea spray, wet chalk, lees. Round, zippy, everything I want in Muscadet

Found marked down at the local no-frills discount liquor dump. Can’t think of too many $19 whites with this kind of class; oyster shells and wet stones. Plenty of richness without being funky or overly leesy. Tremendous length. #muscadetsevreetmaine #pépière

New vintage (2016) only serves to confirm my opinion... "one of the worlds greatest wine producers". Can a wine be subtle and serious at the same time... ABSOLUTELY!! Once you let you mind calm down and prepare to hear it's voice, this is very very impressive....thank you for making it.

First go on a pepiere ever, I like sour wines, excited! White fruits, lemon, but grassy, saltiness, high acidity, bitterness and minerality. Good complexity and pretty long finish. A small oxidative note or am I mistaking..?
