1 litre of wine! It’s the size you’d expect for a wine from 200-year-old vines! And all that at such a price! With notes of crushed strawberries and pepper... A jolly bottle of wine. The fruit of a disciple of Marcel Lapierre!
Louis-Antoine Luyt was born in the Breton coastal city of St Malo some forty years ago. Following a handful of formative viticultural experiences alongside the likes of Philippe Pacalet and Marcel Lapierre, he finally moved to Chili, and settled in Cauquenès, 400 km south of Santiago de Chile. In 2006, he produced his first wines and in February 2010, when an earthquake caused the death of 521 people, Louis-Antoine found himself trapped under rubble for fifteen long minutes. And it was precisely during this horrible quarter of an hour that he decided to stop using sulphites in his wines. The will to survive, and the international solidarity that followed the event, led to the creation of wines which proved to be even more precise, fluid and enjoyable. Adventurous and determined, Louis Antoine is another in a long line of purebred, trailblazing Breton exiles.
1 litre of wine! It’s the size you’d expect for a wine from 250-year-old vines! Made from vines growing only 1000 km from the equator, thus yielding a far richer juice: 14% ABV. If your friends tend to run through your wine collection like jackals, try giving them some Carrizal!
