Dry white wine

Élixir is our life perfume; feminine, floral, demure, fine and with a beautiful tension between the nose and the mouth; the dialogue between the muscat of sand and the “palomino” of “albariza”. Its grape comes from one of the oldest vines that can be found from the local Muscat of Chipiona, coarse-grained, from sandy and clay soils of the “Pago Abulagar”.

Luis Gutiérrez – Robert Parker (Spain)

“I love the finesse and elegance of the Lumière 2018, a subtle palomino from old vines at the La Platera vineyard in Miraflores Baja (95 puntos Parker).”

José Peñin – Guía Peñin (Spain)

“Lumière 2019 is straw-colored; complex aroma with notes of cereal, dry stone, toasted bread; fleshy, tasty, elegant mouthfeel (96 points).”

Dan Keeling – Noble Rot

“Far from modern ‘technical’ winemaking, Muchada learnt his métier from Sanlúcar’s humble elder vignerons, with his and Léclapart’s pure, saline ‘Univers’ and ‘Lumière’wines (both in the Top five).”

Darren Smith – Decanter

“Muchada puts a huge amount of effort into farming, learning from the old generation of Sanlúcar viticultors to produce Palomino of the highest quality, which he expertly transforms into the most pure and crystalline of wines (97 points).”

Jancis Robinson MW (Financial Times)

“It is tempting to wonder which wines currently being launched on the market may develop massive reputations, and even become cult wines. I would like to nominate the Andalusian wines of Muchada-Léclapart“.

Luis Gutierrez – Robert Parker – (Spain)

“I loved the 2017 Lumière, that somehow made me think of the white topped-up wines from Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura, with a superb palate, round and balanced.”

Sarah Jeans Evans. Master of Wine (England)

“The bonus (of Lumière 2018) is that without the usual influence of flor or solera, you can taste the terroir…. A delicately honeyed wine with drifts of jasmine and a clean, saline finish“.

Rene Langdahl. Wine journalist (Denmark)

“Can one describe a landscape, a mood, best by meticulous and naturalistic artistic reproduction? I doubt it, but they are impressionists. They have transferred the insane glare from chalk-white soils under a cloudless but seagull-subdued sky and saline sea breezes to the bottle.”

Julia Harding. Master of Wine (England)

“2018 Lumière is incredibly long and satisfying. Even with so much intrigue and complexity, the fruit is lovely. Persistent, tantalising finish. I’m grasping for words…”

James Goode. Wine journalist (England)

2018 Lumière is Such concentration here with a lovely mineral streak and notes of crystalline lemons, a slight salinity, and a bright acid line under everything. Has great concentration and precision.”
