From the Critics:

  • "Continuing Abbatucci's project to explore what comes of allowing Sciacarellu vines (plus a bit of Barbarossa) to go un-pruned, his 2012 Gris Imperial Rose once again displays remarkable delicacy - at a mere 11% alcohol, no wonder! - and almost equally remarkable, not to mention delightful flavors of ripe tomato, green herbs, and mouthwateringly saline-sweet, iodine-tinged shrimp shell reduction. This refined, disarmingly delicious rose will prove versatile - and a fine value - through spring of 2014."

    "I hope that a substantial share of those reading these lines will by now have had an opportunity to taste at least one wine of Jean-Charles Abbatucci, about whose amazing work I have written on several occasions in this venue, including extensively in my issue 205 report. So I'll spare you more tales at this time and get right to the wines, of which this summer I was finally able to taste an entire line-up. To verify vintages on the numerous Abbatucci wines that are not of appellation Ajaccio and formally non-vintage, consult the first two digits that appear in tiny print on the back label immediately after the capital 'L.' (In the event that such a 'lot number' cannot be located - which applies to any non-AOC Abbatucci wines prior to the 2011 harvest - you are at the mercy of your retail or restaurant source, although 'Cuvee Collection' wines from before that date do display vintages on their corks.)" - 91 Pts David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
