2016 Patrimonio Rouge

Domaine Giudicelli

Of these three Niellucciu-based reds, Muriel Giudicelli’s Patrimonio shows the strongest kinship to its Tuscan cousins (remember that Niellucciu is genetically identical to Sangiovese, having migrated to the island centuries ago). Less rustic than its counterparts, it radiates pure class—a trademark of Muriel’s wines, achieved through organic and biodynamic farming, gentle, infusion-style vinifications, and long élevages in carefully selected foudres. This elegant thoroughbred of a wine emanates a deep and mysterious aroma you could get lost in. The flavors penetrate and linger, offering suggestions of black cherry and fragrant maquis. Approachable today with some aeration, it should age like a great old-school Chianti—plus some extra Corsican gusto.

About Corsica

map of Corsica

I first set foot on the island in 1980. I remember looking down from the airplane window seeing alpine forest and lakes and thinking, uh oh, I got on the wrong plane. Then suddenly I was looking down into the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean. Corsica is a small, impossibly tall island, the tail of the Alp chain rising out of the blue sea.—Kermit Lynch

Kermit’s first trip to the island proved fruitful, with his discovery of Clos Nicrosi’s Vermentino. More than thirty years later, the love affair with Corsica has only grown as we now import wines from ten domaines that cover the north, south, east, and west of what the French affectionately refer to as l’Île de Beauté.

Corsica is currently experiencing somewhat of a renaissance—interest has never been higher in the wines and much of this is due to growers focusing on indigenous and historical grapes found on the island. Niellucciu, Sciarcarellu, and Vermentinu are widely planted but it is now common to find bottlings of Biancu Gentile and Carcaghjolu Neru as well as blends with native varieties like Rossola Bianca, Minustellu, or Montaneccia.

As Kermit described above, Corsica has a strikingly mountainous landscape. The granite peaks top out above 9,000 feet. The terroir is predominantly granite with the exception of the Patrimonio appellation in the north, which has limestone, clay, and schist soils.The wines, much like their southern French counterparts make for great pairings with the local charcuterie, often made from Nustrale, the native wild boar, as well as Brocciu, the Corsican goats milk cheese that is best served within 48 hours of it being made.
