2020 Pépière Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Clos des Briords

Posted by Joe Salamone

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

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

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. 

All of this goes a long way in explaining why wine lovers of all stripes go deep on each vintage of Briords. 

The 2020 is a beautiful example of Briords. It has the incisiveness and tension that we love in Briords. Overall the 2020 has a very compelling presence, length, and pristine clarity. 

Clos des Briords is one of the most rock-solid and beloved values of French wine. There's no doubt focusing on the wine's value is myopic. Far beyond its price tag, it needs to be said that Briords has served as a prime example of the heights that Muscadet can reach and how well it can age.
