Pour Ma Gueule Clos des Fous


Pour Ma Gueule means translated directly for my mouth but really means down my throat! Well if you taste this wine you will understanding the obvious meaning then…

Clos de Fous means they’re all crazy. Well in a positive way, this is not too far from the truth and don’t let the French here foul you, this is a Chilean wine from the renowed Itata Valley! This is a wine region in the southern end of Chile’s long, thin wine producing zone. Unfortunately they are going through a moment where they are planting Chardonnay and Cab savs to serve the American market, but wineries likes this still stay true to their origins and place in the world and have gems like this.

Hopeyou enjoy as much I did as it’s a curiosity but a fun wine at this price. Pair it with roasts, game, charcuterie — anything rich and spiced.
