This Chardonnay has an unapologetically bold character, infused with sheer joie de vivre. Born from sun-drenched vineyards in the Pays d'Oc area, Fat Bastard fully embodies the vibrance of this Southern French region.
Delightful tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and guava intermingle with aromas of vanilla and honeysuckle - a character guaranteed to elicit a smile whether enjoyed with food or on its own. Make today fabulous.
We weren't quite sure what to expect before we broke into today's wine. With a tag line of "Fabulously Full-Bodied" we figured we were in for a big, heavy, butter bomb kind of Chardonnay. Turns out this Chard is surprisingly light on its feet, just the way we like it.
The 2020 Le Fat Bastard Chardonnay opens with a pleasing aroma of citrus, peach and pear with just a touch of vanilla and a nutty note.
Taking a sip reveals this wine is not buttery at all and surprisingly balanced. With a smooth and lively mouthfeel, it is very easy to drink. It features similar flavors to the nose with a bit of tartness in the mouth.
It ends dry and long, with some lingering touches of spice under the fruit and even a hint of chalky mineral note.
