Clos Culombu Etienne Suzzoni Vin De Corse Rouge Calvi 2009 (1x75cl)

Founded in 1973 by Paul Suzzoni, this vineyard covers 39 hectares on the estate. Since 1986, Etienne Suzzoni, Paul’s brother, has been at the helm of the enterprise. Le Clos Culombu is situated between the Gulf of Calvi and the Montegrossu mountains, whose peaks reach 2000 metres. Situated only 2 kilometres from the sea and 8 kilometres from the mountain peaks, the vineyard enjoys a very particular micro-climate. The soil is worked in the traditional manner and minimal weed killer and chemicals are used. The yields are kept low to maintain quality.

This wine is a blend of 50% Niellucio (a local variant of Sangiovese), 30% Sciaccarellu, 10% Syrah and 10% Grenache. This Corsican red has beautifully scented aromas with nuances of red fruit, berries and a hint of spice. it is a rich and full-bodied wine, but it displays a delightful yet youthful character.  The flavours include red fruit such as raspberry as well as a spicy quality mixed with cocoa or dark chocolate.  It has a soft yet full mouthfeel and is absolutely delicious!

This wine goes well with pork, beef and light game such as rabbit or it will also complement a strong flavoured cheese.

"Fairly dark garnet-red. A delightful mix of slightly jammy black fruit and a vegetal dimension on the nose. Round attack, generous, compact palate with subtle oak and silky tannins. Spicy, long-lasting aftertaste. A wonderful wine for game. Keep". (Gilbert & Gaillard)
