Domaine Comte Abbatucci Cuvee de General – Jean-Charles Abbatucci
Pale yellow with green reflections, the powerful nose opens on very fresh notes where aromas of buttery white and citrus fruits accompany mineral notes. In the mouth, the freshness and acidity of this wine is balanced by its full body and richness. The aromatic aftertaste is long and very complex. The woody aromas are discreet and places very well in its minerality value.

In the colorful, picturesque city of Ajaccio, capital of Corsica, you can't get very far without seeing the name Abbatucci. There are streets, monuments and plazas that carry the name, which is normal given that General Jean-Charles Abbatucci from Ajaccio was a hero of the French Revolution and comrade in arms of another local hero, Napoleon Bonaparte. Step into a wine bar or a restaurant there, chances are these days they'll pour you a glass of Domaine Abbatucci. The domain is run by Jean-Charles Abbatucci, a direct descendant of the General, who has now become a local hero of another kind—for providing the local populace with its most sought-after libation.
