We share the tasting notes for Lumière 2018
“Not sherry but a wine from the growing group of still wines made in the sherry zone. The soil is classic Miraflores albariza, the variety Palomino, 60 years old. The bonus is that without the usual influence of flor or solera you can taste the terroir. The partners Alejandro Muchada and the Champagne producer David Léclapart have conjured a delicately honeyed wine with drifts of jasmine and a clean, saline finish. The wines is made in three years old Bordeaux barrels, which add texture but don´t interfere with the clarity of flavour. Biodynamically farmed”. 95 points
