Fat Bastard

I just bought a wine called "Fat Bastard."


I kind of had to buy it because of the name. (Like La Poussie.)

The back of the bottle says...

The Origin of the Fat bastard

Good friends Thierry (renowned French winemaker) & Guy (British wine industry rebel) created Fat bastard almost by accident. It started out as an experiment Thierry had been doing in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel ‘on the lees’ (yeast cells.) He didn’t know what to expect, but when the friends tried the wine Thierry exclaimed...

“Now zat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard!”
(read with a strong French accent.)

This very British expression perfectly described the wine’s wonderful color and round, rich palate so that’s what they called it.


I bought the Shiraz. I'm going to have a glass now. I'll let you know how it is.

UPDATE: Blah, blah, blah. It like has no taste, no aroma, nothing. I taste it for a split second when it hits my tongue and then it's gone. It was $14; don't waste your money.
