In an area of the coast of France is the isle of Corsica, though there it’s called Corse. In the northwestern quadrant of the isle is the appellation of Corse Calvi. It’s an area known for its vines, olives, its location next to the coastline and the ‘Prove,’ the name of local maritime winds that cool down the vines from the high exposure to sunshine. The domaine began in 1945 when a large olive oil press had been abandoned, and Roger built a winery inside the thick walls of the press. Camille, the daughter of his son-in-law, now makes the wines. The whites are made into fresh and ready to drink styles while the reds are aged longer. Regardless of type, the wines are extremely food friendly.
These particular vines are 45 years in age with most of the fruit growing together in the same vineyard. The wine simply ages in steel before it is released and gets its bottle name from the local wind ‘E Prove’ that blows through the vines.
