Clos des Fous "Pour Ma Guele" Red Blend

$ 17.99 $ 19.99

Clos des Fous was founded in 2008 by Pedro Parra, Francois Massoc, Paco Leyton and Albert Cussen.  The four friends were tired of hearing that Chilean wine was all boring, industrial, green, and overripe so they set out in search of the “Dark Side of the Moon.”  Clos des Fous’ philosophy is to produce wines with tension, from grapes grown in extreme terroir,  with minimal intervention in the winery.  This blend (Cinsault 85%, Pais 8%, Malbec 5%, Carignan 2%) from the Itata region has notes of tobacco, rose petals, mint, eucalyptus, and juicy red apple on the nose. The palate shows red fruits of raspberry, caramel apple, rhubarb, and strawberry to lead to a finish of dark chocolate and earl gray tea with medium tannin.
