Clos Canarelli

2011 Carcaghjolu Neru Clos Canarelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Yves Canarelli’s namesake estate is located on the far southern tip of the island of Corsica, near the town of Figari. This area is a fairytale landscape of pink granite outcroppings, rugged hillsides, small farms, and wild scrub brush. It is truly wine paradise. Yves recently planted a few acres of vines in the white limestone of the southern fortress and port town of Bonifacio, an investment that I expect will eventually deliver some of his grandest wines.
    Speaking of grandeur, the rediscovery of Carcaghjolu Neru was probably one of the greatest events in the modern history of Corsica. This grape now produces the “king” of Corsican wines. In the hands of a master like Yves, it is capable of uncanny depth, power, and complexity, yet it retains a featherweight touch on the palate. Dark, palate-staining wild berries, extreme but weightless concentration—this is a wine that will really impress your friends who think they’ve seen it all. –Dixon Brooke
