Domaine Yves Leccia
Domaine Yves Leccia is located in Corsica, in Poghju d'Oletta and is part of the Patrimonio appellation. Leccia vineyard, located at the gateway to the Mediterranean, has a clay-limestone terroir in hillsides at E Croce and Partinelone. From a large family of winemakers, Yves Leccia naturally turns to oenology for his studies. In 1980, he graduated and devoted himself for a few years to the family domaine. In 2004, Yves Leccia left the family vineyard to create his own domaine: Domaine Yves Leccia, in collaboration with his wife Sandrine.
Leccia vineyard is closely followed, in a perfect balance between tradition and modernity that continues from generation to generation. The work of the vineyard is mainly based on respect for the environment and minimal mechanization. Thus, Yves Leccia was able to avoid the use of herbicides and allowed to pass his vineyard in organic farming certified Ecocert. Domaine Yves Leccia offers 2 ranges: the first in AOC Patrimonio in 3 colors, as well as an excellent Muscat du Cap Corse with aromas of cedrat. The YL vintages of the other range are in Vin de Pays. The challenge is rather successful for Yves Leccia Patrimonio wines since these wines are all fine and fresh. On the other hand, the red Pettale is fleshy and has more body.
