The Fat Bastard Languedoc Roussillon Pinot Noir 2021 vintage is a pale ruby hue. With aromas of lifted cherry, rose-hip with a hint of bay leaf with underlying notes of allspice and foraged mushroom. While we wouldn't go so far as fat, this unadulterated expression of Pinot is a juicy, medium bodied offering

Given a bit of breathing room, a certain plumpness unfolds with its ripe raspberry and dense dark cherry fruits. This, combined with its lip smacking cranberry juice-like acidity, fine tannins and hint of smoky spice makes this Pinot incredibly more-ish. Drink over a couple of days to watch this wine evolve... if you can make it last that long!

Winery & Vintage Info

The 2021 vintage saw challenges for producers across Pays d’Oc. A heatwave in February and March promoted early bud break, whilst July and August were marked by drought and relatively high temperatures. Whilst the growing season was shorter than normal, the resulting fruit showed a marked intensity and ripeness complemented by a soft acidity from the cool nights and consistent
breezes from the South.

Fermented in open stainless steel vats on skins for 14 days. Gentle pressing off-skins via airbag press. Matured in a selection of old French oak.
