Domaine Antoine Arena is one of the leading producers of wine on the wonderful island of Corsica. The vines are tended biodynamically and the wines are made naturally to reveal the true expression of terroir.
The Domaine Antoine Arena Carco was recommended to us at the lovely restaurant and bar called Le Tire Bouchon in Calvi on the island of Corsica.
It is almost a perfect expression of the potential of the Vermentino grape, having a luscious mouth feel and great structure and an appealling 'liveliness' that comes from the use of the natural yeasts.
We also recently revisited this wine at the new premises of the delightful restaurant Spring in Paris. It was as good as we remembered it in Corsica.
We have tasted many good wines on Corsica but the Domaine Arena offerings are among the best.
