Fat Bastard ‘Remarkably Full Bodied’ Pays d’Oc Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from France - Other
Review Date : 12-Mar-2017
Moderately dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues, lighter on the rim. The nose has soft, up-front aromas of dark-red berry fruits entwined with nuances of dark herbs and peppery elements, unfolding raspberry liqueur elements. The aromas build with depth. Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses rich, juicy flavours of dark-red berries and dark cherries intermingling with dark herbs and subtle peppery and raspberry nuances. The fruit is underlined by light, supple tannin extraction with integrated acidity, and the wine flows with a gentle freshness emerging on a finish of red fruits. This is a juicy, red berry fruited Pinot Noir with herb and peppery notes supported by fine, grained, supple tannins. Match with herb marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Languedoc-Roussillon fermented to 13.3% alc., the wine aged in seasoned French oak. 17.0/20 Mar 2017 RRP $19.00
