Anne-Marie Lavaysse was an architect living in Paris and one day took off for the South and never looked back. She had a polycultural farm in the Languedoc and had geese, ducks and goats. In 1993 she bought her first parcel, which was an abandoned vineyard and she put her cow in it to clear the land. For 7 years she pruned aggressively in order to allow the root systems of the vines to reestablish themselves. Her first vintage was 1999, consisting of 3 hectoliters, and to Anne-Marie's surprise it was good! She got rejected by the AOC b/c her Muscat was not oxidized enough and the local Coop nearly banned her from harvesting and now makes table wine and damn it's good.
The "Muscat Sec d'Octobre" is a pet nat of 100% Muscat a Petits Grains. The wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts and is bottled right before it completes fermentation to create a natural bubble. Unfined and unfiltered. No added sulphur. Vinified dry with just a hint of sweetness on the finish. Floral and mineral, pear, orange rind.
