Seriously serious Corsican white. Reduced at first, a healthy shaking and vigorous swirling helped quite a bit. Started off closed and leesy, finished musky, deep and rich. Bergamot, quince on the palate, some real stony / saltiness on the finish. Acidity is more prickly than nervy. Really evocative stuff - tastes of the dramatic battles where the land meets the sea. Think heavier, oilier fish cooked in olive oil / butter / garlic. Nice discovery...
