Domaine de la Pépière, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie ‘Les Gras Moutons’ 2014

Pepiere Muscadet Gras Moutons 2014 #1

Louis Dressner Selections, New York NY.

Pale straw.  True to type: he’s lighter than air, denser than iron.  Chiseled site aromas, the marine influences abound; he’s a powder of sel gris, a cromlech of mineral and ash.  Momentum surges across the palate, fruit almost too compressed to register and the gneiss finish sears with articulation.  Lees character to soften the whole into harmony but there’s an obscurity for now: he’s in search of something, and resolute he will find it.  From 2019.
