This blend of Grenache and Niellucciu indeed works wonderfully and offers us a mouth full of velvet evolving on sweet notes of cherry, raspberry, blackberry and strawberry. The whole is completed by a touch of garrigue and tapenade and structured by delicious small tannins. A superb elegant and bewitching Corsican wine not to be missed under any circumstances!
80% Grenache, 20% Niellucciu. Organic
Raised in a small village in the heart of Patrimonio, Yves worked alongside his father in the vines and cellar at the earliest age he could. The Leccias have been making wine from some of the finest terroirs of Patrimonio for countless generations, and there was never the least doubt in Yves’ mind that he would continue the tradition. Originally working alongside his sister, he decided to branch off on his own in 2004 and focus on the single terroir he felt was the top in Patrimonio. This terroir, “E Croce,” sits on a thin chalk soil above a thick bedrock of pure schist, facing the gulf of St. Florent.
