Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
This shiny wine has a salmon-pink color. It offers a fresh nose on cranberries with hints of scrubland. Pretty light, this wine is well-balanced. It allies freshness and greediness, with a tasteful length.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Over 50% the Corsican wine carries the “Ile de Beauté” IGP appellation.
Domain and appellation
The St Florent domain, as known as Saint Flo, is located in Corsica.
- Terroir: The Corsica is a mountainous territory located in the middle of the sea. Thus, it is cradled by sea breezes. This is why Corsican wines are typical and different, thanks to a mixing of Corsican and international vintages. The grapes come from estates carefully selected, located in the best territories of the east coast of Corsica.
- Viticulture: The producers decided to respect the terroir and the vine. They always look for the permanent expression of each vintage.
- Wine-making: The fermentation is done at low temperature. The first juices are selected carefully. Then the wine rests and ferments.
