This estate in Chile is a genius collaboration of four unique minds. Pedro Parra, Francois Massoc, Paco Leyton, and Albert Cussen bring their unique expertise together to fully plumb the diverse microclimates and geology that Chile offers. If you’ve not yet tried their wines, this Tocao (it roughly translates as ‘touched in the head’) should get you hooked. It’s a blend of ancient dry-farmed Malbec planted in 1914, and 80-year-old Carignan. These magnificently gnarly vines develop extraordinarily deep roots in search of any measly vestige of moisture in the soils. They produce an almost laughably low yield of potent fruit, resulting in wine of great depth and complexity. The Tocao 2012 is great old school Chilean red, bursting with aromas and flavours of cherries and plums, eucalyptus, dried herbs, and dusty earth. Fermented in concrete vats, the wine spends time mellowing in fine new and used French casks. Supremely well balanced with gorgeous fruit, spice and earth components, it’s irresistible to drink now, and will repay a few years in the bottle. 2012 was a cool vintage, affected by La Niña, and the wines are extra elegant as a result, and helping this one snag a 95 point score.
