🤓 250-year-old vines? Oh Dios mío! This is a skin-contact/macerated “orange” wine made up of the aromatic white varieties Muscat of Alexandria, Torrontes, Semillon, and Chasselas. All the smells jump out of the glass!
Louis Antoine Loyt is an expat from Burgundy who fell in love with Chile while spending time there in his 20’s to sharpen his Spanish. He went back to France to study wine. In school, he met Mathieu Lapierre. This was Loyt’s introduction to natural wine. He had the fortune to visit the Lapierre estate numerous times. OG Beaujolias philosophy meets the New World’s old vines. Is your mind blown?! Ours are!
