2018 Clos Culombu, Storia de Ecce Fructus, Corsica
This could be one of our favourite new discoveries. It’s a blend of obscure but characterful local Corsican varieties like Sciaccarellu and Aleaticu. An expressive, peppery, red fruit nose is followed by a smooth, supple and generous palate, with a surprising freshness. Accomplished winemaking avoids rusticity but retains the varieties’ naturally wild characters. It only improves as it opens up. It is bright, pure, mineral and elegant. A revelation.
