Corsica, France

Domaine d'E Croce (Yves Leccia)

Cuvée YL Rouge l'Île de Beauté Grenache Blend 2014

What a fantastic wine, especially on day two. Structure of a great merlot, fruit of southern France. Leather, smoke, bitter herbs and roots, with cherry fruit underneath. Truly a well made, serious wine. — 2 days ago

Domaine Comte Abbatucci

Faustine Vieilles Vignes Vermentino 2017

Sublime balancing act of texture - round battling peripheral acid and all in harmony. Death and power in a medley of lemon, white flowers, alone, and anise. Savory and made for dinner. — 5 days ago

Domaine Giacometti

Sempre Cuntentu Corsica Sciacarello 2015

Minerality like pop rocks! Tingly, some sort of dark magic heat. Sawdusty fruit. Yeah baby. — a month ago

Clos Canarelli

Corse Figari Red Blend 2015

The native grapes of Corsica in a cool, herby, and restrained complex mix of delicate dark berries and black pepper. Smokey perfumes, cedar, and herbs with a foundation of minerals. Concentrated but I wouldn’t say rich or dense like the KLWM site describes. If anything, expressive. — 7 days ago

Domaine Comte Abbatucci

Faustine Vieilles Vignes Sciacarello Nielluccio 2014

Medium- ruby color. Medium aromatic intensity with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, red plum, licorice and wet stone. Intense fruitiness on the palate. Medium+ body, high acidity, medium tannins, not too grippy. Excellent quality, suitable for further aging. — 12 days ago

Domaine Santamaria

Patrimonio Nielluccio 2013

Bought 2014 from Domestique on 1/28/19 per recommendation in lieu of Catalan grapes. $25. Drank 1/30/19. Acid and tannin galore. Splendid fruit at front and back. Lean not sweet. Astringent. Lower alcohol means structure just a bit off. Ruby red with black meniscus. — 19 days ago

Domaine Casa Rossa

Ile De Beauté Rosé

Great value! This tastes fresh. Note the most dry rosé, more like off-dry. Strong minerality balanced out with notes of melon and apricot — 16 days ago
