Clos des Fous Subsollum Pinot Noir 2015

Clos des Fous is a collaboration between Rock star Pedro Parra and François Massoc, Oenologist and Cooper. Master of Wine Tim Atkin has stated this could be the most exciting wine project in the Southern Hemisphere. Pedro Parra's special skill, unique in the world of wine, is his ability to 'taste rocks.' (crazy right!?) No one in the history of wine has spent more time studying 'calicatas,' or the pits dug in vineyards (he has dug an astonishing 22,000 in his relatively brief career); no one has thought so deeply of the connections between terroir and the structure, aroma, and flavour of wine, or contributed more to the new science of precision viticulture. His ability to predict the characteristics of yet-to-be-made wines based solely upon observations of the depth, complexity, and porosity of soil in various parts of a vineyard is out of this world! A soft and silky red with strawberry, plum and chocolate character. Some stone, too. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Love the focus and balance. Drink now or hold.” 93 Points, James Suckling
