Details

Primavera Clos Ouvert Louis Antoine-Luyt 2012, natural wine, organic wine, very low sulphites, a little VA, notes of tobacco, smoke, dark fruits. A blend of Carmenere, Carignan and Pais, this excellent natural wine from Chile has bags of character and is maturing very well, now 7 years in bottle and still bright and fresh, the wine has savoury notes, spice and smoke with underlying dark fruits. Try it from the fridge, it is excellent.

This little band of Frenchman from the Loire Valley led by the rogue of Chilean wine making, Louis-Antoine Luyt have had a tough time of it trying to establish their naturally produced wines. On top of the many difficulties of establishing biodynamic production and trying to make fine wine from the less esteemed local Pais variety, they were hit by the earth quake that decimated large parts of Chile in 2009. They lost a lot of that year's production and Louis-Antoine was himself trapped in the devastation for some time. They recovered a few barrels of that year's Carmenere and out of the disaster has come a wine of sheer beauty. This was the first vintage to be bottled in Chile and it has the deep fruity intensity associated with Carmenere but with a beautiful freshness and also a very evident life force. Louis Antoine is a bit of a force of nature himself and his wines have a wildness to them. Sometimes, it isn't quite right, sometimes the bottle just doesn't sing, almost like (Louis himself) it can't be bothered. But when the Clos Ouvert wine wants to speak to you, you are captivated and very possibly will fall in love. If great wine is like art, Louis Antoine-Luyt and his Clos Ouvert wines are as artistic as they come.
