Regular price $30.00

In Stock: 0

Domaine de la Pépière is now run by Rémi Branger and Gwénaëlle Croix, since the retirement of Marc Ollivier after the 2019 vintage. Farming of all of their estate vineyards is certified organic and biodynamic. 'Clisson' is fom 60-year old vines (on average) growing in the granite cru of Clisson. Two years of aging on the lees.

Clisson was originally called "Granite de Clisson" after the unique bedrock in the vineyard. Marc changed the name to Clisson to agree with the INAO cru communal classification. Pépière owns 5.5 hectares within the cru but only a part makes it to the actual Clisson bottling (the rest goes into La Pépie). It's a patchwork of vines of various ages planted on a unique mix of gravel, clay and sand on a subsoil of granite. The oldest vines were planted in 1929 and on average the vines are 60 years old.
