Clos des Fous Locura 1 Chardonnay

Pale yellow with a flash of green. The nose has hints of white peach, pear and white flower blossom. A subtle note of butter on the palate with freshness and brightness, balance and complexity. A persistent and mineral finish.

"A funky Chilean offering with its own sense of style and made by a pair of dynamos – Pedro Parra and François Massoc – who forged their relationship in Burgundy. This is complex, harmonious and long, showcasing zesty, crunchy apple fruit and a mineral kick on the finish." 18/20 (93 points), Decanter Magazine"Flinty nose and very rich palate. Really exciting! Great depth, stunning value and integrity." 17/20, Jancis Robinson"Clos des Fous operates on the fashionable minimal intervention principle, inspired by the partners' experiences in Burgundy. The fruit was whole-bunch pressed, fermentation was slow and cool, and malolactic conversion was suppressed but the wine was aged for 12 months on the lees à la bourguignonne with just 5% in old oak. There is no overt hint of oak on the wine, which has the most disarming combination of a seriously nervy, flinty nose and very rich palate. There is fabulous tension in this wine, which has great depth and integrity." Wine of the Week, 16 January 2015, www.jancisrobinson.com
