Buy wines from Corsica, France

Eminent wines from particular vineyards, aromas that promise refined flavours, a robust climate that gives originality and subtlety – Corsica is not to be outdone when it comes to winegrowing. On terrain that comprises a chain of mountains caressed by a climate that is simultaneously Mediterranean, marine and mountainous, its vines are in a peerlessly splendid natural setting. Over the course of time the Corsican winegrowers have learned how to put their environment to good use and succeeded in producing structured, elegant wines of proven quality. The wines should be laid down for a few years to bring out the best in them, and then enjoyed as an aperitif by the sea or at a table in a traditional village. Ah, the good life!
