May 21, 2020 - Wow, this was drinking so well. So much balance in this wine. Lost its baby fat to show great chalky minerality on the palate.
Intoxicating nose with plenty of citrus and lemon notes. With more air, touches here and there of pineapple. Some fresh spicy licorice on the back end.
What a great wine.
July 21, 2016 - bright, flowery nose with lemon zest. wonderful sweet lemon and mineral flavor with a perfectly balanced acidity. light medium body. really good.
March 1, 2015 - Way better on day 2. Still a great wine, white flowers, hint of licorice and lemon. Oily texture but full of energy.
October 12, 2013 - A few days after drinking Leccia Patrimonio this was an interesting comparison.
Very good as well with the same chalky minerality. The palate seemed broader here with riper fruits. The balance was actually much better on the 2nd day with more harmonious fruit (almost too intense on day one).
This still has a few years to go.
August 9, 2013 - Blind tasting. Nose discret ; red currant, dust, a bit of coffee, a hint of minth. The mouth in fine, medium bodied, on bloody orange, a bit like a rosso di montalcino. This plesant fine stylee in unusual in corsica. Interesting, almost very good.
June 9, 2013 - Euro-Themed Lunch - Island Theme (Corsica, Canary Island, Sicily, Cyprus) (Donato Enoteca, Redwood City, CA): Nice nose (B+). Soft palate (B/B+).
November 23, 2012 - light aroma. clean palate of soft mineral, peach, guava, medium acidity. i expected a bit more salinity, but this did not detract from what it was. . Nothing distinctive, but very well balanced. a bit expensive, but a definate buy again for the right day.
May 31, 2012 - Light pink color, achieved by skin maceration, no doubt. Ripe lemon, white pepper, sandy minerality, and a gorgeous orange peel note. Nice bight acidity, citrus flavor, medium alcohol and a nice long length. Great refreshing rose.
January 31, 2012 - Aroma is very soft and floral, with a light melon note, really lovely. The floral quality comes through on the palate, with medium acidity, and a crisp yet soft finish. A truly beautiful wine; very enjoyable.
January 13, 2012 - lovely wine with nice weight, citrus and crushed stone character. maintained that delicate balance between weight and acid. drank over 3 days and loved every minute of it.
