2018 Pépière ‘Les Gras Moutons’ Muscadet
Marc Ollivier of Domaine Pépière needs little introduction. He sits with the absolute best producers of his appellation. Les Gras Moutons is Pépière’s Muscadet grown on gneiss soil. The gneiss gives the wine a lovely softness, with more fruit and floral complexity than the wines grown on the local granite.
It’s a wine with interest beyond being the perfect foil to oysters and fresh shellfish (which it still is by the way). This is arguably his most enjoyable wine to drink young.
