Marc Ollivier is the face behind Le Pepiere, at least he was until the 2019 vintage when he retired. His journey in winemaking comes from his venture as a winemaker and the uniqueness of the Muscadet region has shaped the identity of the domain. The region is known for quite a bit of bulk production and many of the winemakers are negociants. The mark of their style comes from their efforts to produce single vineyard cuvees which effectively show off the variety of soil types. They take things even further by making bottles with extensive lees ageing, sometimes up to five years! Their wines are benchmark for the region and you can’t beat the price!
La Pepiere has 43 hectares of vines, though only three of them are devoted to red grapes. In fact, Muscadet does not allow red grapes, so this bottle gets the Vin de Pays classification. The juice is aged for five months in steel and made for immediate drinking.
