An immensely rich and racy Mediterranean white.  More info

A blend of typical Corsican grape varieties, this white Vin de France wine has both organic and biodynamic certification. The grapes are harvested manually and sorted with painstaking care, then pressed directly without destemming. After static racking and an alcoholic fermentation in demi-muid barrels, the wine is matured for 9 months on the lees, then for 2 months in the cellar. Lastly, the wine is matured for 6 months in bottles. Its pale golden colour reveals gourmet aromas of ripe yellow fruit and exotic fruit. An attractive freshness on the palate lends this seductive white wine real body and length.

Vin de France Diplomate d'Empire Comte Abbatucci (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 13°C.

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.
