Domaine U Stiliccionu ‘Antica’
Ajaccio, Corsica, France 2015
The vineyard was planted in 1961 on granite and shale soil and facing east, giving it full sun exposure from dawn till dusk. Sébastien Poly has been at the helm here for more than a decade, when his grandfather passed his dream and life’s work onto him. Sébastien quickly transitioned the property over to biodynamic farming and has been making stellar wines with true respect for old Corsican traditions ever since. He uses a true minimum intervention approach and works hard to express the healthy grapes and soil, nothing else, in his wines and uses very little sulphur to ensure the wines stability.
