Abbatucci Diplomate d`Empire Blanc 2011 (750ML)
91 WA
"My July tasting of Abbatucci’s 2011 Cuvee Collection Blanc: Il Calvaliere – Diplomate d’Empire (there’s no further room on this wine’s front label for the full name of his ancestor in question: Don Jacques-Pascal Abbatucci) represented my first acquaintance with this demi-muid-raised product of mixed plantings done by his father in the early 1960s, and featuring (in order of prominence) the grapes known as: Vermentinu, Rossala Bianca, Biancu Gentile, Genovese, and Brustiano. There is a piquant, pungent prominence of citrus rind here – notably lime and pink grapefruit – along with wafting aromas of myriad scrubby, resinous herbs that continue inner-mouth; and these features offer fascinating counterpart to underlying flavors of almond and coconut milk featured on a lush, subtly oily mid-palate. This lingers bittersweetly and piquantly, if without the refreshing primary juiciness let alone the buoyancy and intricate complexity that characterize the corresponding “General de la Revolution” bottling. Lacking experience, I can only guess that the wine presently at issue will be best enjoyed over the next 2-3 years...91" WA 8/13
