Merlot is one of our most popular varietals and we work extra hard to achieve the wine’s quintessential characteristics. We source fruit from all over the Languedoc-Roussillon to make Fat bastard Merlot. The area is known for its stony soil, which naturally limits yields, and gives the wine a ripe, fruity character and mature tannins.
Food pairing
Easy to drink with a wide variety of foods, especially poultry and grilled meats. Ideal for your next barbeque!

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.
