  • Winemaker Marc Ollivier takes his time making Pepiere's Muscadet. He farms organically, 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.
