Domaine de la Pépière Clos des Briords Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Muscadet Sèvre & Maine Sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2014

$17.99

...outstanding, offering up excellent depth, soil signature and purity. The top flight bouquet jumps from the glass in a blend of lemon, lime, a touch of pear, salty ocean air, wet stones and incipient notes of lemongrass and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and vibrant, with a superb core of fruit, lovely focus and grip, bright acids and seamless balance on the long, youthful and very classy finish. Just a classic vintage of Clos des Briords in the making that should age gracefully for the next twenty years. 2015-2035. John Gilman, A View from the Cellar

I could buy all that was available of this wine and not have enough. 2014 of perhaps a touch rounder than some, but that's not a complaint. I have more, but there are not enough to last the arc of this wine's life. Best white value/age deal, hands down.

An absolute beauty. Marc Ollivier always makes a beautiful wine and Briords is always a cut above the rest, but the 2014 vintage brings a luxurious and sensual texture that compliments the minerality so well. If you see this wine, buy it. In fact, buy 2.

Always a stunner, but I'm really digging this new vintage. Elegance, intensity, and ripping sea salt inflected minerality. A vintage to cellar if I could only restrain myself

Mmm so good. On par with the 12. Razor sharp acidity.

Bracing acidity. Stoney, salty minerality. Crunchy and long, this is Muscadet by the case for the cellar. 2 a year for the next 6 and you'll be drinking well.

Domaine de la Pepiere has a total show stopper here. I love this wine; ocean air, brine, lemon peel aromas. Pallet is tart citrus, green pear, white minerals and high acid. I need oysters, quick!

Brine, like licking the back of a wet oyster shell, racy & beaming with lemon verbena, tangelo & underripe white peach skin. Dom. de la Pépiète 'Clos des Briords' Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, a gem! #certifiablydelish
