Clos Culombu Calvi, Ile Rousse, Balagne

Wine tasting | Calvi | Corsica

Family domain created in 1970, planted south in front of the sea and of the bay of Calvi.

The Clos makes reference in the name of a shell which made for the time office of "trunk" and allowed to communicate with the neighborhood. Culombo also evokes the name of a plot of land, a place of leniency of the turtledoves of passage. These two meanings were formerly taken back on the labeling of bottles. Today the domain, in conversion to the mode of organic farming, produces vines nielluccio, sciaccarello, vermentino, grenache and cinsault typical of the naming. The domain is mainly recognized for the elaboration of its white wines and its rosés; stemming from first juices, in the very pale grey, the speciality of Calvi. Etienne Suzzoni also tries hard to reintroduce old red vines Etienne Suzzoni also tries hard to reintroduce old red vines as the minustello, the carcajolo nero, the morescone and the bianco gentilic for the whites.
