"The big news at Maestracci this past year has been the conversion to biodynamic agriculture. As with many of her peers in Corsica, when Camille-Anaïs Raoust took over the reins of the domaine a few years back, one of her first steps forward was to push a more natural, holistic approach in the vineyards and the cellar. While previous generations weren’t necessarily hostile to that idea, they were concerned about the associated risks, such as lower yields, and increased production costs. Maestracci, who has long been one of the better values of the island, is trying hard to balance these concerns, doing their best to keep the wines healthy for the environment and our wallets, and fun for us. The 2018 vintage succeeds on those fronts, all while reaching new levels, showing an extra edge of complexity, a finish that seems to linger longer, and a deeper level of enjoyment than we’ve ever seen before." —Chris Santini
