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.
