Le Géneral cuvée is an astonishing blend of rare, indigenous Corsican grape varieties. Producer Jean-Charles Abbatucci has pulled off a real master stroke here.  More info

Général de France is an exceptional, Vin de France-classified blend of typical Corsican grape varieties grown in granitic sand in accordance with biodynamic principles. The vinification stages are characterised by direct pressing of full grape bunches, static racking, and alcoholic fermentation in demi-muid barrels and foudre tuns. The wine is matured on the lees for 9 months prior to a six-month bottle élevage. Jean-Charles Abbatucci has produced a powerful wine combining freshness and aromas of white fruits, citrus and more gourmet notes of butter. On the palate, this wine is a brilliant combination of freshness, acidity and creamy richness. The aromatic persistence is long and highly complex, making this a gourmet wine which will enhance high-quality fish in sauce.

Vin de France Le Général Comte Abbatucci (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 13°C. 

What the experts say...

"Un vin mûr et précis dont la belle palette évoque la verveine, le citron, les fleurs blanches. Le vin est souligné par le côté fenouil. La bouche est de belle dimension. Un ensemble qui se montre épuré, avec une magnifique acidité. Apogée : 2025" (RVF 2017)

Information about domain Comte Abbatucci

Perched 100m high in the Taravo Valley in southern Corsica lies Jean-Charles Abbatucci's 20 hectares of vines. Founded in the 1920s by Jacques Abbatucci, this is one of the oldest domains on the island. An incredible 18 different native grape varieties are cultivated: besides the famous Vermentino, Sciacarello and Nielluccio, Jean-Charles has a mosaic of endemic varieties planted in his vineyards that few others can lay claim to (Aleatico, Carcajolo Nera, Minustello, Morescola, Morescono, Montanaccia…). The domain has a biodynamic approach and the vineyards are laid to grass. A flock of sheep graze amongst the vines during winter and harvests are always carried out by hand. In the chai, vinification is a “hands off' affair and the resulting wines are prized for their finesse, elegance and freshness. A true touchstone of wines from this fascinating region.
