The cuvée "LA PEPIE" is produced with grapes coming from various plots. Some grapes come from the vines of Domaine de la Pépière while others come from a fellow winegrower’s vines in conversion to organic farming. These 30 year old vines on average are situated on the slopes of the river Maine. TERROIR The subsoil is mainly granitic (GRANITE of Clisson and GRANITE of Château-Thébaud) for the vines close the river Maine and made of gneiss for the more distant vines. CULTURE The vines are cultivated according to organic farming or in conversion. Therefore, we have banned weedkillers and our soils are ploughed and scraped. To protect our vines, we use sulphur, copper and various plants, but no synthetic molecule. WINEMAKING The grapes are handpicked and carried to cellar with great care. We use gravity to fill in the pneumatic press; the grapes are not crushed. A very gentle must settling allow the natural yeast to generate the fermentation. This cuvée rests on its fermentation lees until the Spring, without being racked. FOOD PAIRING Served between 12 & 14°C, this floral and fresh wine is perfect as an aperitif or with a meal. It’s an excellent accompaniment to shells and crustaceans.
