100% Melon de Bourgogne. Classic Muscadet on granite. The core of the "La Pépie" Sur Lie bottling is the 10-hectare heart of the Pépière estate, which is part of the Clisson cru in the tiny commune of Pépière near the winery; there is also a significant percentage of their cru Château Thébaud fruit typically, as well as some purchased fruit from a nearby organic farmer friend in the mix. Farming is certified-organic and the harvest by hand. As for Pépière wines, the clusters are direct-pressed and the juice settled for 12 hours. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts; the wine is aged on its lees in large, underground, glass-lined cement tanks for up to a year. Sulfuring is minimal. The first bottling is from wine with about 4 months on the lees; subsequent bottlings have spent up to 8 months on the lees. 


Bright and zingy with hints of fresh melon flavors jumping out of the glass with fresh flowers and mineral notes. There's a slight briny character in the wine that makes it a great pairing with fish, oysters and other shellfish.
