2016 Patrimonio Rosé

Yves Leccia

2016 Patrimonio Rosé Yves Leccia - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


It seems safe to say that rosé consumption in the United States has reached an all-time high. It comes as no surprise: the wine’s obvious thirst-quenching qualities has us all craving the stuff as soon as the first rays of springtime sun break their way through the clouds of winter. And while many rosés serve just that purpose—warm-weather quaffers to be indiscriminately guzzled—certain examples of the style go a step beyond.
     We encourage you to consider this new arrival from Corsica’s Yves Leccia as a Patrimonio first and foremost, and as a rosé second. While there’s no doubt a bottle of this 2016 has the palate-whetting capacities to become your new patio pounder, it carries a stamp of its terroir with such soul and conviction that it would be a pity to neglect its origins on the rocky slopes of the Île de Beauté, just a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean.
     The wafting scent of wild maquis herbs and its mouth-watering, saline finish are unmistakable markers of its origins. In between, there is a serious wine gracing your palate—fleshy and mouth-filling, taut and mineral—that promises a beautiful evolution through the summer months and beyond. No, this is not just yet another pink wine. –Anthony Lynch
