Sempre Cuntentu meaning Always Happy... This is the cuvée we got a crush on, and the one wich pushed us to reference the Estate at Pur Jus! Nose on blueberry, nice volume in the palate, an impression of sweetness, all held together by silky tannins.
Simon and Sarah Giacometti, brother and sister, are at the helm of the eponymous Estate located in the small village of Casta, 15 minutes from Saint Florent and the Mediterranean Sea, Northern Corsica. Their father and grandfather decided to buy the domaine in 1987, a true family-oriented and atypical adventure since one was a potter and the other was the head of a public works company... The apprenticeship was done on the job, the beginnings were promising but it was another time that of the ads for glyphosate, Sarah reminds us. As soon as Christian, Sarah and Simon's father, took over the reins, organic farming became the norm in the vineyard. It is the arrival of the children at the Domaine, in 2006, which impels these same principles in the cellar. Today, Giacometti has 26 hectares in production, with a large majority of native grape varieties, and wines that transport you under the sun of Corsica!
Powerful nose carried by notes of candied cherry, undergrowth, a slight mineral touch... The palate is dense, tannins still well asserted, long finish on red plum. Interesting decanting, 30 minutes before tasting.
