Clos Signadore

Clos Signadore Patrimonio Blanc A Mandria

Country: France 
Region: Corsica
Grape: Vermentino
Colour: White
Bottle Size: 75cl
Alcohol: 14%
Vintage: 2016
Organic

The Clos Signadore is based in Poggio d’Olerra, near the mountainous part of Corsica and is planted with 40 year old Nielluccio vines (local variety very similar to Sangiovese).  Christophe Ferrandis established the Domaine in 2001 converting to organic production in 2010.  Having previously made wines with Domaine Pibarnon in Bandol he originally moved to Corscia to be a consultant with the co-operative.  When he discovered the older vines he was able to take a few hectares for himself.

With Corsica being such an exposed terroir, particularly to heat, careful canopy management is crucial.  To help keep alcohol lower and maintain freshness, acidity and restraint in his white wines, Christophe keeps his Vermentino vines in the shade in 1 hectare of northeast facing vineyard.

The vines were planted in 2006, and are all hand harvested in small bins (to prevent any damage).

Only small amounts of sulphur is added at bottling.
