A midnight tasting in Chile in 2011 was our first encounter with the ‘Fous’ (‘crazy men’), when Alberto Antonini introduced us to Pedro Parra, with whom he works closely at several of South America’s top estates. Pedro now makes wines under his own label but was originally one of the four ‘Fous’ alongside winemakers François Massoc and Paco Leyton, as well as Albert Cussen, who looks after the business. The name ‘Clos des Fous’ is an ode to the 12 years that both Pedro and François spent studying and working in Burgundy, as well as to what their peers described as their ‘craziness’ in crossing the traditional Chilean vineyard boundaries to source grapes from those in the more extreme conditions further south and east.
Ripe stoned fruits with refreshing acidity and a slight new oak influence. This is a beautifully balanced and restrained Chardonnay and we absolutely love it.
