Martin visited us in November 2023 and I was able to taste this lovely pet-nat with him in person. He has an accomplished history in the wine industry here in New York with internships at Uva and Flat Iron wine stores as well as having a career as a DJ while working at famed NYC record store A1.

He also comes from a family of winemakers with his father leading the charge for natural wine in the Rhone valley, specifically championing a pre-clonal Syrah variety known as Serine (also featured in this month's club).

Martin is an extremely warm, thoughtful, compassionate, and intelligent person and he puts all these qualities into his vines and wines. All of the vines he grows have been organically grown from the outset and he never uses chemicals in his wines save for a tiny bit of sulfur depending on the vintage, and definitely not this Petite Nature 2022!

The Petite Nature is a blend of negociant grapes with 30 year old muscat petit grain making up the majority of the blend. It has a tiny dosage of frozen grape must from the same grapes it’s made from to ensure refermentation, but is completely dry. On the nose the muscat aromas jump out of the glass with its familiar pleasant floral notes, and is backed up by notes of salinity, minerality, and stone fruit. In the glass you're in for a wild ride with a wine that is teeming with florality, minerals, salinity, with the tension of a bit of gaminess. This is a complex yet refreshing wine with great depth that is complemented by funky or soft cheeses, pizza, charcuterie and the like. Keep it in your fridge for the next time you need an aperitif or summer thirst quencher!
