created almost by accident…

It started out as an experiment Thierry had been doing in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel “on the lees” (yeast cells).  He didn’t know what to expect, but when the friends tried the wine Thierry exclaimed…”Now sat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard!” (read with a strong French accent, of course).

This very British expression described the wine’s wonderful color and ROUND, rich palate so that’s what they called  it.
