2015 Vin de France Blanc “Hauts de Carco”

Antoine-Marie Arena

2015 Vin de France <i>Blanc</i> “Hauts de Carco” Antoine-Marie Arena - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Hauts de Carco is, as any respectable Arena fan knows, the pinnacle of viticultural achievement in the family. Planted high on the slope of Patrimonio’s has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed signature landmark—a sheer limestone outcropping that rises from the island like a giant wave—this vineyard delivers a wine of extreme flavor and character. As Kermit has aptly described on these pages before, it is like Corsican Chablis: pure Vermentinu planted in seashell-encrusted limestone. It also won’t come as a surprise to Arena fans that Antoine-Marie is talking about trying to plant even higher up the impossibly steep and rocky fin. But for the moment, until Hauts Hauts de Carco is born, this is still the highest. –Dixon Brooke
