Owner Marc Ollivier takes his time. He hand harvests (a rarity in the region), uses natural yeasts, waits for the wine to finish and bottles with a very light filtration. The vineyards are in old vines (40 years and older) with a particularly good exposition on a plateau overlooking the river Sèvre. All the vineyards are from original stock: Ollivier is the only grower in the Muscadet who does not have a single clonal selection in his vineyards. This adherence to traditional wine growing is labor-intensive, it’s risky, and it’s worth it. Every wine from Domaine de la Pépière is a revelation of complexity, verity, and an honest connection between wine and earth.
