April: Kermit Lynch’s Corsica
Leave it to legendary importer Kermit Lynch to explore one of the wine world’s last great frontiers – Corsica.
Whether it’s the name, or the fact that this Mediterranean island is closer to Italy than France, many people assume it is Italian. It is not. It is decidedly French. How French? Birthplace-of-Napoleon French.
It’s easy to see why, with a wild array of native and familiar varieties, grown on a diverse number of terroirs across the island. What ties them altogether? Corsican wine is always marked by freshness, a sea-salt air quality and purity of fruit. Often easy drinking, with a simple joy at the heart of the wine, Corsica has a lot to offer.
