Not typical Southern France Chardonnay, this onersquo;s got body and complexity. Multilayered and smooth, with apple, fig, butter, hazelnuts and cream, it finishes with bright acidity. Tastes much more expensive that it is, so no will accuse you of being a cheap you-know-what.

The name says it all mdash; well, the fat part, anyway. This is a big, fat, juicy Chardonnay from Southern France. It is medium bodied and easy with immense tropical flavors and aromas of pineapple, Asian pear and apple. The finish is lightly toasted with an oak-granted spice. Wine Associates are sensitive to name calling, so be sure to request this wine carefully.

This Chardonnay was made from parcels of the best vineyards in the hills north of Nimes in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of Southern France, using grapes chosen to produce a Chardonnay with intense fruit flavors and real character. All fruit was harvested before dawn and gently pressed while cool, to retain flavor and aroma. The juice was then fermented in small oak barrels to add complexity and aged in barrel for a further four months to develop a fuller structure. All barrels were then tasted and the best selected for this limited release. This wine shows classic ripe tropical fruit flavors on the nose, well-integrated soft vanilla on the palate, and a long complex finish.

The name turns heads (it's actually British slang for full-bodied), but the taste turns your taste buds on! The wine has stone fruit and oaky notes (it spent 4 months in wood) with hints of tropical fruit. It reveals orange, grapefruit and vanilla flavors accompanied by a long, smooth, dry finish.
