Tasting note from dated 21.12.2020, Copyright André Dominé
"The minister was the grandson of the diplomat who was minister under Napoleon III. He was a builder roads, railways, ports in Corsica go back to him," explains Jean-Charles. His top red wine is a cuvee out of Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Morescola, Moresconu, Montanaccia, Carcoghjolu Neru and Aléaticu, which undergoes a maceration of several weeks with changing pigeages and pumping over in conical barrels. The subsequent ageing is similar to that of Monte Bianco. Production 6000 bottles. The bouquet is predominantly redcurrants, on the palate delightful volume, coupled with stimulating minerality, refined tannins, smoky notes, complex spice and excellent persistence.


Medium dark ruby red with black reflections


A bouquet of impressive intensity and complexity, with wild cherries, red currants, wild strawberries, red plums and a note of cassis dominating the attack. With a little more air, the wild aromas of the maquis follow, accompanied by fine spices, black pepper and notes of graphite, smoke and fresh leather.


Red fresh fruit conquers the palate with a lot of volume and roundness. There is fascinating energy and ripe acidity, elegant spice and sublime bitter tones, racy tannins and a fine firm structure that points to the future. A worthy, powerful, serious, yet quite elegant Ministre, very balanced with mouthwatering freshness in the long finish. A Mediterranean red wine full of finesse, charming minerality and great potential.
