    The Cuvée Barbarossa 2012 of the Domaine Comte Abbatucci is a Corsican wine that bears the name of the eponymous grape. This Vin de France is a white wine made from beautiful grapes of a pink skin and a white flesh. Its colour is pale yellow with golden hues. On the nose, at first this Barbarossa generously expresses candied yellow fruit. Then, after swelling, notes of aroma, hops and tobacco appear. It is very singular. On the palate, the Cuvée Barbarossa of the Domaine Comte Abbatucci appears to be ample and fat but without any heaviness. A beautiful balance. The retro-olfaction offers powerful aromas of smoke (just like on the nose). This Corsican wine is a perfect match with charcuterie or cheese, especially from Corsica of course, or eventually from elsewhere.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Abbatucci's 2012 br constitutes a tank-rendered blanc de noir from the Barbarossa vines his father planted in the early 1960s. Scents and flavors of apricot, pineapple and pink grapefruit are prominently reinforced by piquancy of pit, core, pip and rind, so that the mid-palate effect here - while lush and expansive - is simultaneously zesty and tactilely prickling. Accompanying candied citrus rinds and bitter-edged licorice offers a tannic sense of graininess that accentuates this wine's invigorating persistence. I have no experience or even reliable word on how previous renditions have fared in bottle, but if fortune favors you with the opportunity and liquidity, enjoy this wine in its youth, but also explore its potential by cellaring a couple of bottles.
