Clos des Fous Subsollum 2014

ChileSubsollum pinot is a 75/25 mix of fruit from Pucalán in the cool Aconcagua Costa region only eight kilometers from the Pacific - think true Sonoma Coast with remainder come from way down south in Malleco at Traiguén in the very cool Itata region. The nose is fragrant red plums leafy forest floor with spice notes. The attack is medium to full-bodied. The ferment is long and cool with extended ageing on the lees on in cement tanks until bottling. This is not Russian River or Central Otago its Chilean and its fresh and lively with a complex array of cherry flavours from sweet to sour. The future is bright. Clos des Fous is a ‘crazy’ collaboration between Pedro Parra, François Massoc, Paco Leyton, and Albert Cu who are in search of Chile’s ultimate wine potential via its most extreme terroirs.
