Fat bastard Cabernet is sourced from vines grown in stony soils, with controlled yields, primarily from the foothills of Pezenas and in the Minervois region of Languedoc-Roussillon. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more challenging grapes to grow in Southern France so we work closely with the growers throughout the region to determine the best growing areas and harvest times to produce a soft, yet rich wine.
Food pairing
Serve with hearty grilled meats or roasts; complements rich, dark chocolate desserts.

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.
