Clos des Fous is an exciting new project between four Chilean friends: Pedro Parra (the viticulturalist), Francois 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.
Pedro, who has been described as a ‘modern-day Indiana Jones’ (Wine Spectator, 2009), is the person credited with discovering many of the top vineyard sites across Chile, as well as revolutionising the way in which iconic wineries such as Montes plant and manage their vineyards. The key to this has been to move the plantings away from the fertile plains and up the slopes into the Andean and Coastal Ranges, where the rockier soils result in lower vine vigour and deeper roots, which Pedro believes gives better balance and more finesse to the wines. The same philosophy is applied at Clos des Fous.
Clos des Fous is about terroir, is about extreme terroirs in Chile: altitude wines, coastal wines in front of the Pacific Ocean or Southern wines coming from Malleco, 700km south of Santiago, the ‘Chilean Oregon’.
