Made from a block of Syrah vines that are planted on steep, granite soils (which is unique as this region is mostly limestone) facing the Mediterranean Sea, the 2013 Corse XX270 sports an inky purple color to go with incredible granite influence in its liquid rock, blackberry, raspberry, floral and peppery bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, with incredible purity, this is a seriously elegant, classically styled Syrah to drink over the coming decade.

Of no special interest but not unpleasant - This Corsican wine from the Aleria region has a nice balance of minerality and black fruit. It has a pleasant mouthfeel with no sharp edges and while it is lacking in tannic structurte it does possess a certain elegance. It is drinking quite well now but seems unlikely to improve further with the passage of time. It is a pleasant wine at a not unreasonable price and you don't often get to taste Corsican wines
