2013 Domaine Comte Abbatucci "Faustine" Vieilles Vignes Corsica (750ml)15 0 0 0
This is seriously delicious. Hard to say what it is most like, but a Madiran comes to mind. Masculine, rustic, but truly fine with a nice core of dark fruits with herbs, sous bois, saddle leather, and tobacco. While this may not have been the best match for salmon, it worked fine and is killer after the food was gone. This is a unique terroir-driven wine that transports one to the Med on some sunny day before life became crappy. I suppose this is a wine of hope that not only brings one back to happier times, but also one that speaks to a future where all we've enjoyed returns.
