Leccia "YL" Rosé, Ile de Beauté, Corsica '22
A pioneer of the Patrimonio appellation, Yves Leccia helped put Corsica on the map for wine enthusiasts in France and beyond. Now at the peak of his art, he continues to represent his island through impeccable interpretations of his home terroir, bottling up all the elements that make Corsica so special in salivating fashion.
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 the finest terroirs of Patrimonio for countless generations. Originally working alongside his sister, he decided to branch off on his own in 2004 and focus on the terroir he felt was best.
Yves is a firm believer in the idea that if you want something done right you need to do it yourself, tending his vines alone and working the cellar by himself. He keeps his yields low, knows when to harvest, and knows how to let E Croce express itself in the wines. (Info from the importer Kermit Lynch)
Part of the estate’s signature range of wines, the “YL” rosé is made from Niellucciu (Sangiovese). It was aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for six months.
