Our run away favorite Rosé this year challenging Abbatucci for best Rosé in Corsica.
Domaine de Marquiliani
Rosé de Sciaccarellu
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.
