Domaine de la Pépière Château-Thébaud 2009
Why don’t I drink more Muscadet?
It is generally affordable, interesting to share and seems to be constructed just for my type of pallet. Here is a perfect example. Priced at under 20 bucks from Solano Cellars, this wine is very balanced with a ton of vibrancy and sweetness. It reminds me a lot of picking up pears from Frog Hollow at their peak ripeness. Juicy, stoney and just the right pucker with each bite. The mouth feel is similar too; firm and textured but dissolves into a sauce, where the acid is both biting and a pleasure, as it balances the sugar. As I write this, I formulate a plan to go buy a bottle as soon as the kid wakes from her nap. But for now, I hope she sleeps a bit longer and I’ll sit quietly typing away, headphones on with our house as peaceful as it could be.
ohhh, she just woke, well, thats not so bad either.
