2010 Domaine de la Pépière Classique Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie
Wine & Spirits
Deep in color, this is a round and supple Muscadet with honeyed scents of orange and mineral salts. It grows more complete with air, as flavors of lotus root and pale white fruit fill out the finish, sustained by the wine’s acidity.
Marc Ollivier's Muscadets are some of the best wines from this AOC, tasty in their youth and ageworthy too. Ollivier takes his time, even leaving this, the "entry level" Muscadet, on its lees for an extended period of time to accentuates the wine's inherent crispness and add complexity. This is a classic oyster wine, but would be delicious with Santa Barbara Spot Prawns, California Spiny Lobster, Dungeness Crab or other local seafood.
