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.
Cauquenina is a blend of several varietals: Carignan, Malbec, Pais, Syrah, Cinsault, and Carmenere. This is a dark ruby-red wine with violet tones and outstanding red and black fruit aromas. Black pepper, tea leaves and notes of graphite and violets come through on the palate, revealing a full-bodied wine.
