2019 Leccia Patrimonio Rouge
Patrimonio is wildly considered to be one of Corsica’s prime AOP due to its complex soil structure, mixing clay, limestone, granite and blue schistes. Pierre-Joseph Leccia grew the estate and turned it over his two children Annette and Yves. In 2004 they each went their own way with Annette keeping Domaine Leccia, its cellar and the historic vineyards. Yves’ son, Lisandru, after working with his father, took over the Domaine Leccia from his aunt Annette. The young winemaker sets the bar up high with organic farming, new plantings and the ambition to make bright, elegant and deep wines.
This rouge, a blend of 90% Niellucciu and 10% Grenache, is remarkably pure and raw. Its seriousness sneaks up on you because the first taste is so succulent, with pitch-perfect acidity, that you think it’s going to be a juicy quaffer. Then the finish lengthens and the smooth tannins appear.
