"O Bà! "is a new wine added to the estate's "Heritage Vintages" range. It bears this name, which means "daddy" in Corsican, in homage to my father, Pierre-Joseph Leccia, who passed on to me his passion for this profession.
Tasting notes:This year "O Bà! "has all the attributes of a vintage that can age for several years in the cellar. The nielluciu gives structure, the minustellu gives roundness while the grenache brings fruit.
Domaine Yves Leccia is located on the island of beauty, in Poghju d’Oletta and is part of the Patrimonio appellation. Leccia, located at the gates of the Mediterranean, has a clay-limestone terroir in the hills of E Croce and Partinelone.
DOMAINE LECCIA, WINEMAKER GENERATION AFTER GENERATION
Coming from a large family of winemakers, Yves Leccia naturally turned to oenology for his studies. In 1980, he graduated and spent a few years working in the family field. Today, Lisandru and Annette Leccia, the son and sister of Yves, manage the 13 ha vineyard near the Gulf of Saint-Florent. In 2004, Yves Leccia left the family estate to create his own domain: Domaine Yves Leccia, in collaboration with his wife Sandrine. He is also president of AVA Corsica and of the Scientific and Technical Wine Committee.
LECCIA PATRIMONIO: LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT BALANCE
The Leccia vineyard is followed closely, in a perfect balance tradition and modernity that perpetuates itself from generation to generation. The work of the vine is mainly focused on respect for the environment and minimal mechanisation. Bottling is done directly at the estate, followed by a breeding of 6 to 18 months depending on the cuvées. The vineyards of the estate Yves Leccia are traditionally worked, while being ploughed and mechanically paved. Thus, Yves Leccia was able to avoid the use of herbicides and allowed to pass his vineyard into organic farming certified Ecocert.
