2019 Muchada-Léclapart Univers Palamino11735
WINEMAKER: David Léclapart & Alejandro Muchada
REGION: Sanlúcar, SP
Univers is the entrance to our “Universe”, fresh, saline and elegant; pure “palomino” grape. Its grapes come from the lower area of our best vineyard, “La Platera”, with clay-limestone soils of “albariza” and “lustrillos”. Its salinity and purity stand out, due to the fermentation in the old champenoise tanks made of solid steel. The young vineyard highlights the salinity and the plot shows subtle hydrocarbons and powder, aromas associated with large “albariza pago”.
100% Palamino from 20 year old vines. Fermented and vinified in a steel tank with interior ceramic paint for 9-10 months. Spontaneous fermentation; without rectification of any kind. Initial sulphite minimum. Work on lees. Without filtering or cold stabilizing.
Muchada-Léclapart is the project of David Léclapart (famed French producer of Champagne) and Alejandro Muchada (winegrower from Cádiz) in “Marco de Jerez”, a historic wine region, located on the Atlantic coast of Andalusia. Together they are implementing the experience and knowledge of David in biodynamic agriculture as well as the French school of good winemaking.
Their objective is to create a great white wine, without flower veil and without fortification, based on the respect and care of the soul of Jerez: the Albariza land and the Palomino grape.
