About this winery

For Pedro Parra the purest expression of his passionate devotion to terroir is Clos des Fous, his collaboration with Francois Massoc, Paco Leyton, and Albert Cussen. Although the project is based in Pedro's home region of Bio Bio, 500km south of Santiago, the focus is not limited to making wines from Bio Bio: rather the idea is to discover (or rediscover) and celebrate great unknown terroirs throughout Chile - a vast and endlessly varied country - that is full of the vibrancy, uniqueness, and...

December 2015

There is a new, top-of-the-range Cabernet Sauvignon, called 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Würm; it is a textbook Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Maipo, but in reality it has some grapes from Alto Cachapoal from their Grillos Cantores vineyad. The nose has herbal aromas, notes of graphite, meat and blackberries. The palate is ultra-polished with sophisticated, fine tannins, and very good acidity and balance; it is tasty, long and chalky. This is textbook Maipo Cabernet with a fresh twist in a ripe and warm vintage. A triumph over the natural conditions of the growing season. 2,400 bottles produced.

Josh Raynolds, February 2017

Inky ruby. Mineral- and smoke-accented cherry, boysenberry and pipe tobacco scents show excellent focus, picking up suggestions of allspice and licorice with air. Pliant, deeply concentrated dark fruit preserve flavors show excellent clarity and vivacity, and a touch of bitter chocolate emerges as the wine opens up. Finishes bright, spicy and extremely long, offering silky tannins and lingering touches of sweet blue fruit and licorice pastille.

July 2015

A wine with lots of dark berry and blueberry character with just a touch of chocolate and wood. Full body, fine tannins and a fruit finish.
