To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we sourced wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.
Food pairing
A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses.

Producer
Good friends Tierry (renowned French winemaker) and Guy (British wine industry rebel) created FAT bastard almost by accident. It started out as an experiment Thierry had going in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel “on the lees” (yeast cells). He didn’t know what to expect, but when he and Guy tried the wine, Thierry exclaimed, with a strong French accent, ”Now zat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard!” This very British expression perfectly described the wine’s wonderful color and round, rich palate, so that’s what they named it. In 1991, Veronique Torcolacci obtained her degree in oenology from the University of Toulouse. After a few jobs, including a consulting position for Chateauneuf du Pape, she joined Gabriel Meffre as oenologist in charge of quality.
