Domaine de la Pépière

Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 'La Pépie' 2019


no added sulfur

Country: France

Region: Loire

Type: White Wine

Grape: Melon de Bourgogne

The La Pépie cuvée is a blend of estate fruit from all of Pépière's terroirs, 50% of which fall within the Muscadet Sèvre & Maine appellation and 50% within the crus. Soils are sandy and granite-based. Farming is organic and harvesting is done by hand, as for all of the estate vines. As with the rest of the Pepière Muscadet wines, the fruit is direct-pressed and the juice settled naturally for 12 hours. It is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts. The wine is aged on its lees in large, underground vats until bottling. Wines are unfined and unfiltered, with moderate to very little sulfur used.

This wine is racy, crisp, acid- and mineral-driven, with a bare hint of richness from the sur lie factor, very much indicative of Pépière's granite-based terroir and clean, natural winemaking style.
