Loire Benchmark:
2018 Pepiere Muscadet de Sevre-et-Maine Clos des Briords

Posted by Joe Salamone

Year after year, Pepiere's Clos des Briords is our favorite Muscadet.

There's a beautiful honesty to Briords that causes us to buy it by the case every vintage. You might find more powerful and richer Muscadets, but Briords is unrivaled when it comes to luminous transparency and cut.

Clos des Briords takes Muscadet close to its Platonic ideal of jagged saline minerality.

The fist vintage of Briords was 1988, a wine that as of 2008 was still showing really well. It's sourced from old vines on granite.

The 2018 Briords is a deeply layered expression of the wine. Underneath the stone fruits and ripe citrus is a core of Briords' piercing minerality.

Clos des Briords is one of the most rock solid and beloved values of French wine. We strongly advise you to stock up on the 2018 at special 6-pack pricing.
