Domaine Comte Abbatucci ‘Monte Mare,’ Rouge, Vin de France 2021

Jean-Charles Abbatucci is a prominent personality in Ajaccio, with a family history dating back to the French Revolution. His name is visible on various landmarks, street corners, and wine bars in the capital city. Jean-Charles is a passionate supporter of Corsican culture and advocates for biodynamic viticulture. Hence, he is renowned for producing exceptional wines on this remote and rugged island.

During my visit in March 2023 with Jean-Charles, I had the pleasure of trying the 2021 Monte Mare wine. What sets this wine apart is the unique addition of seawater that Jean-Charles has been experimenting with. He treated specific plots of vines with a seawater tincture to maintain their health and combat disease pressure. I was able to compare the taste of wines from treated and untreated plots, and can confirm that the treated plots had a more concentrated flavor and vibrant energy.

The Monte Mare has a delightful blend of saltiness, floral notes, and beautiful purple fruits. Its plush palate is complemented by dark purple fruits and a lovely mid-palate. The tannins are present but gentle, while a strong mineral core lingers on the palate. Overall, this wine is a delicious indulgence with a satisfying finish that lasts. - Kimberly Cavoores, founder of One Kourt Studio
