Fat Louis is a line of six wines from France’s Saint Chinian region. Each charming label depicts the story of Fat Louis, a lovable duck who has escaped from a foie gras farm to seek adventure in iconic French settings. Fat Louis wines are accessible for the casual wine-drinker, yet sophisticated enough to satisfy any palate.
50% Cinsault, 50% Grenache
A classic, risqué advertising poster is framed by wine of blushing, crystalline pink. Wild strawberry and lively red fruit aromas give way to a fresh, smooth and harmoniously balanced finale on the palate. Great as an aperitif or with pizza, grilled fare and cold meats.
65% Grenache, 35% Syrah
This label finds our hero downhill skiing in the Alps into a strong bouquet of black fruits, olive-paste and roasted coffee beans. Perfectly delicious on its own, this wine is all the better with grilled fare, red meats, game, leg of lamb, or cheese.
Road to Nowhere
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The ancient Roman road called Via Domitia connects Italy to Spain right through the fields where the grapes for Fat Louis grow. The wine that honors this history has a deep red color and a strong bouquet of toast and spices. A round and balanced texture with a fresh flavor of berries and jam makes this Cab a great pairing for meats and cheeses.
100% Pinot Noir
What could go better with some silent cinema than a fruit-forward Pinot Noir with notes of strawberry, cherry, and raspberry? Warm spices and cinnamon characterize a smooth, pleasant finish.
40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Carignan
Webbed feet are great crushing grapes and getting covered in the deep, jammy purple color of this red blend. Juicy blackberry and ripe raspberry dance on a spicy foundation with nuances of mineral and leather. Discrete tannins invite pairings of red meat, game, lamb, or cheese.
Greetings From France
50% White Grenache, 20% White Carignan, 20% Sauvignon
The beautiful gold shade of this wine provides a bit of late afternoon light for a visit to the Eiffel Tower. Nostalgic aromas of fresh fruit, and subtle notes of pear, apple, and orange blossom provide the atmosphere. Bring the shellfish, hold the mimes.
