The area of northwestern Corsica around the port town of Calvi is known as the “Balagne.” It is distinguished by craggy granite hillsides, olive trees, plentiful maquis, glittering turquoise waters, and, of course, great wines. Kermit likes to vacation here, which gives you a clue about the region’s idyllic qualities. Among its finest estates is the Raoust family farm, planted on a plateau among the haute garrigue known as “E Prove.” The Vermentino in the granite of Balagne takes on characteristics unknown elsewhere in Corsica. Out of this rugged terroir, vigneronne Camille-Anaïs coaxes its unique flavors of herbs, stones, and orchard fruits.
