Clos des Fous, 'Grillos Cantores' Cabernet Sauvignon, Alto Cachapoal, Chile
"A meaty Cab Sauv from the four crazy men of Chile"
Clos des Fous is an exciting project between four Chilean friends: Pedro Parra (the viticulturalist), François Massoc and Paco Leyton (the winemakers), and Albert Cussen, who looks after the business. 'Fous' is the French word for 'crazy men', a reference to what their peers described as their 'craziness' in crossing the traditional vineyard boundaries of Chile to source grapes from vineyards in the extreme conditions further south and east. Crazy or not, we just love the wines they're producing.
