Just returned from a fabulous week on the west side of the island, where I had the opportunity to try many different types of rose and white wines, including the Ajaccio producer the society carries.
This one is just outside Figari and produces high-end wines aged in clay amphors. You can find them in Michelin star restaurants in France and in London. The red is a standout and so is the white. The rose is dry and clean. Paid a visit to the winery last time.
@owmarcel find! This is near the airport in Ajaccio, so quite convenient for a visit. Sublime white. Haven’t tried the red yet, but looking forward to it based on their other wines. The Society carries the rose, which has a nice flavour and finish. It tasted twice as good when drunk while enjoying the sunset at the gulf of Ajaccio.
This is almost everywhere. Easy to find in restaurants and even around London. I like the white too and the Society carries the rose. Calvi is a bit of a hike, so I didn’t go there this time, as I was staying in the south of the island.
The best for last. This can get expensive. The whites are served on many Michelin star restaurants in France (had it once at Helene Darroze in London but it has been replaced by Clos Canarelli). Faustine is their entry level wine.
My favourite from their portfolio is their white Diplomate D’Empire.
More to come…
