About this wine

The grapes to produce the “Tocao” Clos des Fous are hand harvested and transported to the winery. Traditional fermentation took place in concrete vats. The wine is aged in French oak from the Allier forest, 30% of which is new. It spends almost two years ageing in oak and is not racked.

The ” Tocao” Clos des Fous is a mesmerizing Malbec from a vineyard planted in 1914 in the southern Bío-Bío Valley, producing fruit with marvelously fresh acidity and fine tannins. Today there are only 27 hectares of Malbec in San Rosendo and Clos des Fous farm four of them. Funnily enough, the word “Tocao” means “a bit touched in the head”, as nobody else would be crazy enough to work with Malbec in this area.

The name “Clos des Fous” is an ode to the 12 years that both Pedro and François spent studying and working in Burgundy, as well as to what their peers described as their ‘craziness’ in crossing the traditional Chilean vineyard boundaries to source grapes from those in the more extreme conditions further south and east. Pedro now makes wines under his own label but was originally one of the four ‘Fous’ alongside winemakers François Massoc and Paco Leyton, as well as Albert Cussen, who looks after the business.
