Our run away favorite Rosé this year challenging Abbatucci for best Rosé in Corsica.


2013

Domaine de Marquiliani

Rosé de Sciaccarellu

Corse

 

 


$24.99

 

In stock.

 

This is without a doubt the best Rosé we've tasted this year and a wine that we have a sneaking suspicion is even better than Abbatucci's version. Regardless, another very strong argument that the best Rosé wine in the world is made on the island of Corsica. Importer Kermit Lynch says drinking this wine is like "drinking a cloud" - and we'll echo this statement but add a cloud hovering just above the Mediterranean sea. And in the best of ways. While seamless, it is brilliantly mineral driven, restrained with perfect acidity, and brimming with maritime character. One of the lightest shades of pink that you'll see for Rosé wine, our style of Rosé. The domaine is only two hectares in size (very tiny) and only makes two wines both of which are Rosé. This our preferred cuvée, composed nearly entirely of the indigenous Corsican grape Sciaccarellu that the domaine essentially farms organically. If there is a new Rosé to add to your summer arsenal this year here is our recommendation, a wine that will easily sit next to Abbatucci and Tempier and we wouldn't be at all surprised if this outshines the two if poured together in the coming months (and at a more modest tariff). Small amounts imported and arriving in stock next week.

We've had a nice little run with the wines from Remi Treuvey, a young and talented winemaker who has taken charge of the viticulture side of d'Angerville's new project in the Jura, Domaine du Pelican. With his full-time commitment, this looks to be the last wine we will be getting from his personal project. A beautiful sparkler from the Jura, 100% Chardonnay, spending three years on its lees before being disgorged without dosage. Remi apprenticed under Jacques Selosse in the past, and as we've seen with the 2008 version last year, obviously has picked up the skill of making top notch bubbles. Vinified in older oak developing both power and precision, we cannot say enough about this wine (especially at under $20). This last lot will be leaving Remi's cellars next week, and we highly recommend grabbing some in quantity.
