Comte Abbatucci Ajaccio Cuvee Collection 'Ministre Imperial' Corsica 2011 750ml

Proprietary Blend from Corsica, France

Points     |     RP: 97
Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Ministre Imperial exhibits powerful aromas of tart red fruit (currant and cassis). This wine is finely wooded, slightly smoky and you can find the minerality characteristic of the Corsica area.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 97
"..... Abbatucci’s 2011 Cuvee Collection: Ministre Imperial Jacques-Pierre-Charles Abbatucci .... offers another profoundly delicious lesson in the vinous possible, meaning that until you experience this cuvee for yourself, you will be missing out on an alliance of levity and textural tenderness; florality and purity of fruit; kaleidoscopic interactivity and sheer mouthwatering juiciness that you didn’t realize red wine could deliver....The most prominent impressions here are of tenderly ripe and scintillatingly aromatic and juicy strawberries tinged with freesia and mint as well as a drop of distillate from the berries. Black tea smokiness and piquancy of cherry pit help set into relief the lusciously pure fruit delivered on a liltingly buoyant, silken palate, while wafting perfume and saliva-liberating salinity accompany a sensationally expansive and persistent finish. Since there have been five vintages of this cuvee, it should soon become possible to address the issue of its bottle potential. Meantime, as with its white “General de la Revolution,” you certainly don’t want to miss out on savoring bottles over the next couple of years given how amazingly delicious this is – and, you’ll soon discover, how versatile too. On the other hand, if you can locate and afford sufficient bottles, hold-back a couple for a longer voyage of discovery."
