Thierry and Guy Pinot Noir Fat Bastard 2009
Lively and elegant with ripe red fruits and a hint of floral notes. Soft, smooth tannins and rich flavors of strawberries and raspberries, finishing with cherry notes. Food pairings: This wine marries extremely well with white meats such as chicken, veal and pork; the soft tannins complement fresh fish as well as salads.
Editorial Reviews for Thierry and Guy Pinot Noir Fat Bastard
This is a touch shy on the nose but comes off as rather earthy and herb stemmy with dried cherry fruit and a hint of allspice. Round and supple on entry, this quickly shows some firmness from the acidity. Gentle but present fruit tannins lend this a bit of a plum skin after a while, showing light mineral and toast flavors that drift off onto the modest finish along with some dried cherry fruit flavor in the mouth. Notes of blackberry and cherry pop on the mid-palate, which also turns just a touch drying and extends over the rather long finish. Nicely done, perhaps not the most varietal but it drinks well and is nicely firm at this price. 85pts
