Le Clot de l'Origine's "Le Trouble Fait" is trouble like a sunny Sunday. Trouble like a new crush. Trouble like a good Piña Colada. Trouble like all three of those things rolled up into an afternoon you devour every moment of, pretending Mondays are not a real thing. And trouble because Mondays are real and you drank the whole bottle because this Muscat d'Alexandrie (of the OG Vitis vinifera fam) tastes & smells as if the sun was squeezed and fresh pineapple juice rained down from a clear spring sky while you frolicked through fields of long grass, sage, and gardenia. Juicy but dry, it's everything you want from an aromatic white wine without the cloying weight.

45 year old Muscat vines. Skin contact. Unfiltered. Fresh, bright, high acid. Tropical and floral notes, jasmine, star fruit, lychee and a little lemon juice. Killer pairing with salmon sashimi.

Subtle, yet disturbingly refined, with several notes revealing themselves late (but discreetly) in the palate. #lyranmatbar

Typical natural wine apple notes, with pineapple on the finish, and razor-sharp acidity all the way. I'm not a huge fan of dry Muscat, but the bio treatment suits it well in this case.
