DOMAINE COMTE PERALDI

Marilyne Costa

DOMAINE COMTE PERALDIBeautiful winegrowing of 50 ha vines, broods on the slopes of Mezzavia, floret of the insular vine growing. This old winegrowing (the first vines were planted there in XVIème century) was completely restructured in 1965 by Count of Poix-Peraldi. It is currently the most important vineyard of the controlled appellation “Ajaccio”, and the type of vines are more traditional there (Sciaccarello, Cinsault, Carignan, Niellucciu, Vermentino).
The son, Guillaume de Poix takes over, his projects tend to get as close as possible to Nature by passing his vines in Organic. Renovation of the cellar, re-equipment of new presses, vats, investment in cooling equipment; and beautification of the property.
Always a superb Ajaccio cuvée Cardinal 2015, 100% Sciaccarello, terroir of granite arena hillsides, fermentation in concrete vats around 28°, maceration for 15 days, maturation of 18 months, of which 12 in new barrels and 1, 2 and 3 years... The wine develops connotations of humus and small dark fruits, with round and generous tannins and a voluminous mouth. L'Ajaccio rouge Domaine Comte Peraldi 2017, 60% Sciaccarello, 20% Nielluccio and 20% from Carignan and Cinsault, with aromas of macerated red fruit, a wine with nuances of blackcurrant, prune and pepper in the mouth, wide and rich, beautiful evolution like this excellent Ajaccio rosé Domaine Comte Peraldi 2017, 60% Sciaccarello, 30% Cinsault and 10% Nielluccio, beautiful shade, ample, friand, rich, with this nose of rose, heather and lily, and this characteristic hint of spice in the finish in shades like the Ajaccio blanc Domaine Comte Peraldi 2018, 100% Vermentino, seductive by its breadth, with the nose of fresh fruit and acacia flower, all in harmony, ample in the mouth, of a very nice finale.
L'Ajaccio cuvée Clémence 2016, 100% Vermentino, terroir of granite arena hillsides, acidic and poor lands, raised in new oak barrels for 6 to 9 months with sticks, complex bouquet where intertwine notes of almond, of hawthorn and garrigue, evolves in mouth towards delicately honeyed nuances. You must also taste the red Guillaume 2015, 50% Nielluccio, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan, intense color, a fruity and finely peppered wine, well balanced, of a dense and complex finish with nuances of fruit compotes, very good guard.
