The sommelier info

A sunny vintage that keeps all its promises with the superb Diplomate d'Empire White, which reveals a real complexity as the tasting progresses. We go from aromatic power to spicy and peppery notes and then come an unsuspected freshness, which harmonizes perfectly with the mineral notes and the salinity of the finish.

Depending on their maturity, the grapes of this atypical blend are pressed as whole grapes or destemmed, while the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in demi-muid.

The ageing phase in demi-muid and on the lees lasts about 9 months, then it also takes place in stainless steel tanks for 6-7 months after blending the best juices.

Diplomate d’Empire White is best served with seafood and white-fleshed fish such as carp or barbel for example. With a buttery sauce or why not an asparagus risotto. Lobsters are also an ideal match with this wine. Open 1 to 2 hours before serving and let it decant.

The domain

Domaine Abbatucci is one of the most renowned and ancient Corsican wines. It is located on the heights of the Taravo valley and offers a breathtaking view to visitors of the island. The Abbatucci family has made history and continues to cultivate its unique know-how and heritage.

COMTE ABBATUCCI: A UNIQUE TERROIR

The history of the Abbatucci wine estate goes back more than a century, but it was in the 1960s that Antoine Abbatucci noticed the threats to the island’s privileged and preserved environment. President of the Chamber of Agriculture of Corsica at that time, he created a conservatory of Corsican grape varieties in order to preserve them as well as possible. He also had 18 different grape varieties planted at the Domaine Comte Abbatucci on a single plot. Jean Charles Abbatucci, his son who became a biodynamist, then helped him to encourage the cultivation of the emblematic grape varieties of the Corsican soil.

DOMAINE ABBATUCCI, IN HARMONY WITH NATURE

Domaine Comte Abbatucci cultivates mainly indigenous grape varieties such as Sciacarello, Nielluccio and Vermentino. The Abbatucci family has always had at heart to keep practices respectful of the vine and the soil, that’s why the grape harvests are manual and only indigenous yeasts are used to vinify. The soil work at Domaine Abbatucci is constantly and conscientiously followed via biodynamic methods in order to produce high quality Abbatucci wine that promises a certain imprint of the Corsican terroir.

THE WINES OF ABBATUCCI

Abbatucci produces several cuvées such as Faustine, Valle di Nero, Monte Bianco or Alte Rosso. It also shines thanks to its cuvées of collection, in homage to the illustrious ancestors of the Abbatucci family. If the greediness of the Faustine cuvée works wonders, the structure and complexity of the Monte Bianco can also seduce you. For its part, the Imperial Minister Abbatucci deploys elegant notes of cinnamon and pomegranate while the General of the Revolution promises more spice and freshness. Finally, the Diplomate d’Empire vintage from Domaine Abbatucci is fleshy and frank in the mouth.
