  • Winemaker Marc Ollivier takes his time making Pepiere's Muscadet. Certified organic, he farms with biodynamic practices, hand harvests, uses natural yeasts, really does age sur lie, then bottles with little added sulfites and only a light filtration. His old vines have a particularly good exposition on a plateau overlooking the river Sèvre. All the pieces are in place. Pure and simply satisfying.
