LPM Pet Nat Muscat 2023
2022 La Petite Mort Pet-Nat (short for petillant-naturel) is a rustic style of sparkling wine with a tradition that predates the champagne-method. Whereas champagne is made by adding yeast and sugar to a still dry wine and re-fermenting it, Pet-Nat is made sparkling by bottling during the primary ferment. This iteration is from locally grown Muscat a Petit Grains Rouge (AKA Brown Muscat). It has all of the grapey florals that you'd hope for from a Moscato, but bone dry on the palate for a much more refreshing beverage!
Unusual, confronting and a little left of the middle. La Petite Mort (LPM) is the home of our 'other' wines. These small batch, experimental wines are produced with minimal wine making intervention and put into bottle without filtering or fining to allow the raw essence of our experimentation to shine through. Rustic and characterful, LPM wines promise a unique sensory experience and a story behind every label.
