The pale Domaine de Torraccia Blanc from Corsica is pure Vermentino and has an evocative bouquet of wild Maquis herbs, an elegant, dry, mineral-edged palate and a long savoury finish. Seafood or asparagus are failsafe accompaniments.

Vin de Corse Porto Vecchio: Domaine de Torraccia Blanc 2014

Veteran 'vigneron' Christian Imbert planted his organic vineyard in reclaimed scrubland in the hills above Porto Vecchio in 1966. At the time he was regarded as an ill-advised eccentric - today he is seen as a pioneering visionary.


Domaine de Torraccia

Domaine de Torraccia

An aristocrat from Nevers, the tireless, flamboyant Christian Imbert arrived in Corsica in the 1960s after many years trading spices in Chad and set about planting his organic vineyard on reclaimed scrubland in the hills above Porto Vecchio in the south east of the island. Now in his late seventies, Christian continues to promote the interests of like-minded, quality-driven Corsican winemakers through the UVA Corse collective that he founded thirty years ago. He is a member of the prestigious Academie du Vin.

The Domaine is now ably run by Christian's son, Marc Imbert.

Tried this for the first time, having much enjoyed the above. A very nice wine, but - on the basis of one bottle - not as simply sublime as the above. Still a very good mouthful.
