2007 Domaine Maestracci "E Prove" Corse Calvi Blanc (Previously $16)

SKU #1044528

Vermentino here, though you wouldn't know it looking at the bottle. This is the same green grape as Rolle, as it's called in France, and Malvoisie de Corse, in parts of Corsica. Whatever the name, this white from Rhone native Michel Raoust is spectacularly different from most whites you've tried, whether Italian, French or Corsican. It offers a fascinating smoky note, with a round feel in the mouth and a very tasty herb character. It tastes a little bit wild, and is the perfect foil for fish and seafood cooked outdoors. 13% abv.

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
