2017 Domaine Petroni Corse Blanc (Corsica)

SKU #1356216 Wine Spectator

 This has a plush feel, with a light shortbread note around the white peach, green fig and lime flavors. Verbena and honeysuckle accents add bounce on the finish. Vermentino. Drink now. (JM)  (11/2018)

K&L Notes

A warm weather superstar, this is 100% Vermentino. Domaine Petroni lies on the eastern shore of Corsica near Lake Diane, one of the great sources for oysters and mussels on the island. Founded in 1885 and run by the Ramazotti brothers, the vineyards are planted on sandy and clay soils overlooking the Mediterranean. Their rosé was one of our great success stories this year, but the white and red have made great strides as well.

This lovely Corsican Vermentinu is pure liquid sunlight in a bottle, with welcoming scents and flavors of fresh-sliced apples, lemon meringue and hawthorn, with a wonderful mineral edge on the attractively crisp, persistent finish. A richly aromatic bowl of moules marinières would be the perfect accompaniment to this lustrous white wine. I don't believe there is a better, more versatile white wine in the shop for this price!

This is a delicious and unique take on French white wine from Corsica, the “Island of Beauty” south of France in the Mediterranean. Made entirely from vermentinu, it has vibrant tropical aromatic notes of melon, mango, tangerine, and honey blossom, a rich waxy texture, great focus and a long crisp finish. The expression and complexity are excellent.

Other White Wines



- 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.
