Thierry's Notes

Although Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy, it has also found its way in the South of France. A fascinating varietal, the Pinot pushes us to be patient, innovative, and to have the utmost concern for detail. Coupled with the warm Mediterranean climate, this vigilance provides us with three formative aspects of the this vintage--fruit, smooth tannins on the palate and a long, persistent finish.

Wine Description

Sourced from select vineyards amidst the foothills of the Massif Central near the beautiful communes of Pézenas and Narbonne, FAT bastard Pinot Noir is a brilliant expression of the land from which it is made. The relatively high altitudes of the vineyards provide the optimal temperate conditions necessary for aroma and color development in the wine

Tasting Notes

Intense, cherry red in color with fruit-forward flavors of crushed strawberry and wild raspberry followed by delicate tannins and a long, smooth finish.

Food Pairing

This Pinot Noir complements a variety of dishes including grilled pork sausage with white asparagus or fresh salads tossed in balsamic vinegar.
