Patrimonio blanc, Domaine Leccia - 2022

  • Provenance: Corsica
  • Appellation: Patrimonio
  • Domain: Leccia
  • Grape variety(ies): Vermentino
  • On-call time: 6 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13%
This wine is a reminder of why the Patrimonio appellation is renowned for its whites. Made by Lisandru Leccia, who took over the vines from his aunt Annette, this pure vermentinu has a limpid colour, which precedes a fine, complex nose, combining white flowers with notes of flint, lime-blossom honey and a hint of lemon. The palate is full-bodied, with a fine balance between freshness and fullness, and an elegant, iodised finish with great persistence. This young winemaker is making a name for himself ! Guide Vert RVF: 92/100

As he likes to say, there is only one (!) Domaine Leccia. And while Lisandru Leccia is Yves' son (Yves seceded to set up his own business), he does cultivate the vines of his aunt Annette, who is the sole owner of the family estate. And the boy has character, as well as talent. To be honest, we've never tasted wines like these from the Patrimonio vineyards. So precise, so straightforward, so fresh, so well-cut. Highly expressive vintages, which perfectly express the temperate local climate as much as the personality of these beautiful limestone soils. The white is a vermentinu benchmark, aromatic and as sharp as you could wish for; the rosé is in the same vein, with at least as much salinity. And the reds, what reds! Aged without the use of wood, they are an ode to niellucciu, better known as sangiovese, here interpreted as intense, juicy crus. Accessory to the Pettale cuvée, which bears a striking resemblance to a great Brunello di Montalcino. Finally, the Muscat is to die for - we love it!
