"A red you want to buy by the case, one of those thirst wines is the 2015 Pour Ma Gueule. It is a complex blend from Cauquenes (Maule) and Itata, with some 50% Cinsault and one-third Cariñena, plus small amounts of Syrah, País and Malbec from old, dry-farmed vineyards.

"A red you want to buy by the case, one of those thirst wines is the 2015 Pour Ma Gueule. It is a complex blend from Cauquenes (Maule) and Itata, with some 50% Cinsault and one-third Cariñena, plus small amounts of Syrah, País and Malbec from old, dry-farmed vineyards. The grapes were separately harvested, fermented and aged in stainless steel and concrete vats and then were blended. It's juicy, ripe and balanced, terribly tasty, not terribly complex but greatly satisfying. All the varieties are nicely assembled, easy but not banal, with the granite minerality in the palate, which is so difficult to find in wines and even more so at this price level. A bargain!"~Luis Gutierrez

View all from Clos des Fous
Clos des Fous"Clos des Fous is about four friends – four crazy guys that have chosen to ignore the "experts" about where to plant vineyards and to trust their own instincts. The team is viticulturist Paco Leyton, winemaker Francois Massoc, terroir hunter Pedro Parra, and "bringer of wisdom" Albert Cussen. Clos des Fous, at his heart, is a project dedicated to finding extreme terroirs in Chile and then exploiting those to craft unique wines. They focus on minimal intervention viticulture and winemaking, with the goal of allowing the terroir to express its natural balance and spirit. They are inspired by the wines of Burgundy, where both Pedro and Francois trained."

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

The Perfect Every Day Red

""Pour Ma Guele " is a French term for a stash of wine that winemakers save for family and friends. That phrase fits perfectly as this blend is the perfect bottle to open for a night in with friends. Bright and attractive red berries hit your pallet immediately. The flavors then transform into deep black fruits with a light peppery finish that will be the best friend to any hearty stew. Stock up on this gem and you won't be sorry."

Surprised me

"Opened it with a roasted veggie pasta dinner- olive oil, butter, parm, blk pepper- wonderful"

Mike

Right out of bottle

"Nice bottle of wine. Didn't need much air time to be delicious after popping the cork. Felt the wine could be enjoyed with or without food. It was that approachable! Good stuff."
