The Pépière wines are consistently delicious and from their entry level Muscadet to their top crus. The “Fat Sheep” comes from a south-facing hilltop site in the cru of Monnières-Saint Fiacre, where the vines range in age from 20 to 60 years. The site's gneiss-based soils, mixed with clay and amphibolite stones, distinguish this bottling from Pépière's other more granite-based Muscadets; overlaying its core of citric acidity and stony minerality is a lovely viscosity which adds a sense of richness to the Gras Moutons. The wine spends 9 months on the lees before bottling, that long lees time being a hallmark of Marc's wines that enhance their complexity.
