  • Domaine Gentile Muscat du Cap Corse 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dashed with brandy at the beginning of fermentation, this brilliantly balanced fortified wine with a plush palate easily hides its 16% abv with mouthwatering acidity. Though four years old, it is still quite fresh on the nose, showing orange peel, exotic sweet spice and peak-of-summer peaches. Between the layers of nuance and the medium finish, ... Read More

  • Domaine d'Alzipratu Fiume-Seccu Rouge 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This wine offers an enveloping nose of forest berries, black cherries, scrub bush and dried herbs. Its round mid-palate is countered with lightly tugging and vaguely drying tannins. Its racy acidity makes this super quaffable, ideal for a picnic, life fare or sipping any time. Its finish is moderate and super savory. Read More

  • Jean-Charles Abbatucci Générale de la Révolution Cuvée Collection Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has an impeccable, seamless balance of all its elements. Its riveting acidity dazzles and plays easily with the mid-palate's lovely roundness. Floral, ginger and baking spice elements dominate the nose. The palate specifically tastes of cinnamon with a discreet touch of smoke. The fruits are an enticing mash of white peach, persimmon, ...

  • Alain Corrèges Domaine de Vaccelli Granit Rosé 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Made on right and southern bank of the Tarave valley, this wine hails from western Corsica, south of Ajaccio. There's a touch of wet wool on the nose followed by strawberry Jolly Rancher and watermelon sorbet on the palate. With a touch of viscosity and a prominently juicy mid-palate, this is nothing short of lovely. It's rosé with a big bang of... Read More

  • I have just finished a lovely bottle of pinot noir but it was not from Burgundy but from Corsica of all places and I did not have to pay a Burgundy price It was a Domaine du Mont Saint Jean from the Uval Les Vignerons Corsicans co-operative There was plenty of fruit and it was well structured and it could easily have been a Burgundy.

  • Clos Canarelli Biancu Gentile Vin de France "Bg" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Just tried this wine that I received locally on special order. It is a white wine from Corsica, listed as the southern most winery in France. The grape used is Biancu Gentile, which is a rare Corsican variety. The wine is prepared in cement egg-shaped vats I found the wine very subtle, but quite tasty. Hints of lemon and chamomile, mixed with p... Read More

  • Locations Corse Vermentino NV

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting Corsican vermentino. Starts out just a tad sweet but after a few sips this turns more floral, kind of like a decent reisling with a hit of almond. Decent acidity and a medium finish. Very nice change of pace. Read More
