Wine Critic Reviews:

(Muscadet Sèvre et Maine “Clisson”- Domaine de la Pépière) The 2015 Clisson bottling from Domaine de la Pépière is a stunning young bottle of Muscadet. The complex nose delivers a stellar constellation of bread fruit, a touch of pear, dried flowers, a beautifully complex base of wet stone minerality, discreet leesy tones and very understated topnotes of both menthol and ocean breeze. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and very mineral in personality, with a rock solid core of fruit, snappy acids and outstanding length and grip on the complex and energetic finish. This is a brilliant wine. (Drink between 2018-2045)

Last tasted in late July 2016 – more than a year ahead of its anticipated bottling – this still smells overtly yeasty and leesy, but behind that emerge scents of ripe pear and apple as well as piquant intimations of the tingling, bright crystalline sense of mineral impingement that lends invigoration as well as intrigue to an almost lushly fruity, satin-textured palate. This finishes with a combination of richness and levity (at barely over 12 percent alcohol) as well as vivacity such as one seldom

Vinous Media | 92 VM
Shows lovely purity, with a focused beam of lemon peel, white peach, tarragon and verbena notes stretching out. Light chamomile accent show on the finish, which is filigreed in feel. Drink now through 2019. 420 cases imported.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Pepiere: The region of Loire is something of an underdog when it comes to France's finest wines. However, estates like Domaine de la Pepière prove that the region cannot be underestimated or overlooked, with visionaries like Mark Olivier in charge of producing some of the world's most delicious wines, following strict and traditionalist principles. These wines are intense, elegant, and memorable, with deeply compelling textures and a finish that creates an almost addicting urge to continue drinking. A heavy presence of minerals and acidity makes the wines extremely refreshing, especially if consumed during warm summer evenings - a hit at parties, to be sure. Wines like these are a joy to decipher, as your mind becomes attuned to the subtleties and expressions of terroir within the bottle.

Region Loire: Loire Valley has it all. Whether you prefer some of the most famous grape varieties worldwide, or you like to be surprised with secretly brilliant wines, Loire Valley will make you return any time you have a chance. It's unquestionably one of the most diverse, and sometimes unjustly neglected, wine regions in France. Located on the banks of the Loire river, these vineyards are home to some of the most exquisite French wines. And not only does Loire Valley provide us with top-rated wines each year, but it also deserves applause for the number of bottles it produces. The most prominent grape varieties of Loire are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne. They are undoubtedly the crown jewels of this region, although reds, such as Cabernet Franc, Bourgueil, or Pinot Noir don't fall much behind. With such exceptional grape varieties, it's impossible to think the Loire wouldn't treat us all with absolutely magnificent wines. It offers a wide palette of crisp and refreshing whites, as well as dry, elegant reds. To feel the magic and the impeccable quality of Loire wines, we recommend Domaine Didier Dagueneau, Foreau Domaine du Clos Naudin, or Domaine Huet of Le Haut Lieu.
Type of Wine Loire (Other): In this underrated French wine region, you will certainly have a chance to taste popular Cabernet Franc blends, known for their emphasized fruity flavors. Other widely cultivated varieties are Gamay, Malbec and Pinot Noir. Some of the most exquisite white wines from Loire contain creamy and refreshing Chardonnay grapes, as well as Chenin Blanc, Melon de Bourgogne, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Varietal Muscadet: Muscadet can be easily characterized as a light-bodied yet dry white wine from the Loire Valley region of France. With an incredible aging potential, this wine can be beautifully paired with seafood due to its high acidity and citrus-like astonishing taste, carrying over a tang of spritz that will leave your tongue sizzling and wanting more.
