2017 Domaine d’E Croce (Yves Leccia) Cuvée YL, France, Corsica Rouge
28 in stock
Along with several contemporaries, Yves Leccia is in large part responsible for putting Corsican wine on the map. His tireless work ethic and precise craftsmanship have made him a proud flag bearer for the Patrimonio appellation, as his yummy whites, rosés, and reds beautifully reflect the potential for fine wine from this island enclave.
80% Grenache and 20% Nielluccio. Considered the “Rolls-Royce” of Corsican wines. Lively, fresh, & juicy, it offers hints of smoke, wild fruit, and maquis herbs. It’s chewy tannins provide a touch of rusticity that makes me want to light up the grill. Takes well to a slight chill.
