Details

Le Diplomate d'Empire Cuvee Collection Abbatucci, lush, round, floral, exotic white wine. This is a fantastic white wine from esteemed winemaker Jean-Charles Abbatucci, whose Napoleonic ancestors inspire this Cuvee. Made from Vermentino and other local varieties, the wine has a full mouthfeel, with exotic fruit flavours and hints of resinous shrub. Drinking well now but has potential to age for a long time.

Situated in South Corsica in the Taravo valley, the domaine Comte Abbatucci was founded in 1950. With 18 hectares of vineyards planted on granite slopes at 100m above sea level, the domaine is a veritable museum of Corsican viticultural history and heritage. Antoine Abbatucci, father of the current winemaker Jean-Charles Abbatucci, was a passionate man and was devoted to local grape varieties, in fact, if it wasn't for him, many of them would have been lost to international varieties. Jean-Charles followed the footsteps of his father and became the winemaker of the domaine, preserving a 100 year heritage. Since 2000, he has moved towards biodynamic principles and also joined the association Renaissance des Appellations (created by Nicolas Joly, Clos de la Coulée de Serrant). The domaine grows a delightful range of indigenous grape varieties such as: Vermentino, Niellucio, Sciaccarello and Barbarossa. Descending directly from high profile commanders under Napoléon Bonaparte and faithful to the Corsican charm, Jean-Charles Abbatucci is a proud defender of the tradition and the environment. Ambitious, passionate and keenly aware of his land as a jewel of nature, he has managed to reconcile the tradition of the Corsican terroir and the modernity of the biodynamic viticulture.
