2021 Domaine de la Pepière "Clos de Briords" Vieilles Vignes, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine , Loire Valley, France

Full of warm citrus and melon fruits and lightly textured, this is an attractive, ready-to-drink wine. Concentration from low-yielding old vines brings out the rich texture.


Clos des Briords is located on the hillsides of the river Maine, a tributary of the Loire. The site totals 4.40 hectares and the vines were planted between 1950 and 1989, with the vast majority of the vines between 50 and 70 years old. The soils are "granite de Thebaud" but do not fall within the Château-Thebaud cru designation (more on that terroir later). Only a small part of the oldest vines produce the Clos des Briords bottling.
