2003 Corse-Figari Clos Canarelli "Le Petit Clos" (Previously $14.99 Organic)

SKU #1019857

We should be drinking more wines from Corsica and not only because they represent a real wine value in today's marketplace. They are wonderful examples of a very unique terroir and in some cases rather obscure grape varieties. Located at the southern tip of Corsica is the Corse Figari appellation. Here, winemaker Yves Canarelli crafts elegant and soulful wines from traditional varietals like Vermentino, Nielluccio, and Scaicarello. Muscat a Petit Grain and syrah can also be found here. The red "Le Petit Clos" from Clos Canarelli is a blend of younger vine Syrah, Nielluccio and Sciacarello. It displays bright violet and hibiscus flora-matics along with juicy cranberry and cassis fruit. While, this open-knit and juicy red is a bit less profound than its older brother, it is perhaps more user friendly . Decant for one hour and enjoy now-2010 with grilled lamb, tri-tip or fresh vegees on the grill drizzled in olive oil!

Nice enough, with some pleasant spice or aromas of garrigue.

France

- 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.
