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. Its 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.
Located within the best vineyard lands of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the historic “Pago Miraflores”, taking advantage of the cool climate of the Atlantic Ocean, they have recovered three hectares of mostly old vineyard from ancient mass selections of Palomino fino and Muscat from Chipiona.
They use minimal intervention techniques to make the wine: they add minimum sulphur (only 10% of what is usual), they do not use selected yeasts or acids to rectify the acidities, they preserve the lees and they bottle without filtering. Overcoming the risks, with delicate and careful work, the result they achieve is sublime: a dry, saline and mineral white wine, with subtle aromas, long on the palate, and absolutely gastronomic.
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”.
