Brand: Domaine de la Pepiere
Region: Loire Valley
Style: White Wine
We’ve discovered an amazing QPR (quality/price ratio) white from Loire that is perfect for the upcoming summer months. It is the 2008 Domaine de la Pepiere Muscadet Les Gras Moutons Eden. It has gobs of lemon, peach, and citrus fruits, and loads of minerality which you come to expect from the best Muscadet. This would be a great wine to have on the deck, preferably with an ocean view, with some fresh clams, oysters, or fish. Or just drink it to keep cool.
Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, on Muscadet,
“For somewhere around $15—and often less—one can drink a bottle of bracingly pure Muscadet that can sometimes rival much more expensive wines of a similar profile from other regions of the Loire Valley, not to mention Chablis, New Zealand and South Africa.
This is just a great glass of white wine that surely will not disappoint for anyone who likes dry, crisp whites like Chablis and Sauvignon Blanc, or anyone who just wants to try something different for a change. You can’t go wrong at this price!
International Wine Cellar 91 Points
Pale yellow. Mineral-driven citrus and green apple aromas are complicated by tarragon, mint and oyster shell. Tightly wound, nervy lemon and lime flavors show a distinctly salty quality and a deeper note of bitter pear skin. Loosens a bit with air and picks up a honeydew quality while retaining vivacity. Impressively precise wine with strong finishing thrust and lingering stone and quinine character.
