Brightly fruited, crisp acid, sweet herbal notes and brisk tannin. I can’t speak highly enough of the wines coming from Corsica right now, except the price 😾 This is extremely quaffable #beaujolaisofthesea

Such a modern label with no information besides what is on the back... The wine is fantastic... Light, elegant and full of life! Stems (guessing a fair amount of whole cluster) lift the fragrance with floral rose petals, licorice , black cherry, raspberry and sweet resin...

Really beautiful grenache. Aromatically bright and extremely lively on the palate. Lovely.

80% Grenache from limestone/schiste on Corsica. Elegant, pretty Grenache.

Gorgeous wine. Very reminiscent of Beaujolais. Pronounced higher toned fruit, think pomegranate or cranberry, but back with some fresh herbs and earthy structure. It felt familiar, yet singular all at once. Fantastic stuff.
