Clos Canarelli Corse Figari Blanc, Corsica, France 2012

Regular price $ 49.00

Raised in foudre and demi-muid, the Clos Canarelli 2012 Corse Figari Blanc leads with a rather reductive piquancy incorporating predictable scents of resinous scrub and herbs. Fennel and nut oils mingle with pear and honeydew melon on a lush and expansive palate, with anise and candied orange rind emerging in a finish strongly marked by sheer ripeness of material as well as by its barrel upbringing and (at least partial) malo-lactic conversion. This rich, long-finishing stuff is unlike other Corsican Vermentinu I’ve enjoyed, and I am not going to pretend that I can handicap its bottle evolution.
