Tasting Notes
Lionel Wojcik's exciting new venture in Corsica follows his boutique St Emilion Grand Cru Chateau Alverne. Using the same Radoux oak barrels as his friend and wine adviser Louis Mitjavile (Chateau Le Tertre Roteboeuf, Roc de Cambes, Domaine de l'Aurage), this oak-aged Nielluccio has received rave reviews for the inaugural 2016 vintage; Jancis Robinson describing it as 'one to watch'.

In order to re-create the humid, damp cellar conditions of his home estate in St Emilion in the dry climate of Corsica, an ingenious system of spraying a fine mist over the barrels every half an hour was created in the Paradella chai.
