The new Cult wines of Spain, that's how we can call the wines of Alejandro Muchada, because the international wine press is unanimous in praise of these wines.
Alejandro Muchada had little affinity with wine in his student days. Alejandro Muchada comes from Cadiz and had little affinity with wine in his student days, but got the wine bug. The name David Léclapart meant nothing to him when he accidentally met him during a tour of France and decided to help during the harvest of champagne house Léclapart. That summer was the start for him on a journey of discovery within biodynamics and becoming a 'vigneron'.
All this resulted in a biodynamic approach to the albariza when they returned home to Sanlucar de Barrameda. Still wines based on palomino and moscatel without mutage (strengthening with alcohol, which is usual for sherry). Wines that are special, one by one, not filtered, nor aged with flor, and all come from certain plots. Alejandro and David own a total of 3 hectares that are biodynamically processed.
The Univers is also non-interventionist with Palomino grapes from biodynamically processed vineyards. Purity and purity are paramount. Fermentation and aging for 9 to 10 months in steel champagne tanks. Natural fermentation with the native yeasts. No intervention, with no product. Work on the yeast cells. No filtering or cold stabilization. Little or no use of sulfites.
The Muchada-Léclapart Univers is light in color with a certain cloudiness (not filtered, pure nature). In the nose an explosion of salty Palomino, complex aromas of umami, stony limestone soils and fruits such as lemon and apricot. The first impulse is already salty, Atlantic, and opens up towards more complexity. Long finish with a lot of typicity. Grandiose starter of this new top house from Andalusia.
