oak barrelled, round bodied, cheap wine, long finish, buttery odours, more acidic than toasted head chardonnay but similar taste. would make a good hostess or novelty gift.

    Far from endomorphic, the 2005 vintage from quirkily named French producer Fat Bastard weighs in a touch light, nimbly toeing the middle line of chardonnays. Neither a butter ball nor perfectly crisp, it offers a little bit to all, but not a lot to any, making it a smart choice for mixed company. A round nose of pear, melon and pineapple aromas creates dimension, while a slightly citric finish scrubs the palate clean after a binge of apple and pineapple. Worth its weight in value.

    Grape variety: 100% ChardonnayVineyards: To craft the Fat bastard Chardonnay, grapes are sourced from all over the Languedoc-Rousillon, from the banks of the Rhone in the east to Carcassonne in the west, and from the foothills of the Massif Central in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the south. These different origins give the wine the balanced fruit flavor and acidity that have made it a consumer favorite.Tasting notes: Round in the mouth with white flower aromas and a long, toasty finish.Food Pairings: Perfect match with a variety of cheeses, poultry and cream sauce pastas, or when relaxing with friends and family. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

    The name says it all - 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.

    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.

    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.

    Not typical Southern France Chardonnay, this one'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.
