ETOILE

Dry white wine

Étoile is our star; dry, hectic, salty and elegant; a silent memory of our History. Its grapes come from “Pastrana Baja”, a vineyard of more than sixty years that we were able to lease for the first two years, located in the lower part of the East orientation of the “Pago Miraflores”. It highlights its memory notes of sherry wines in a wine without intervention and without flower veil.

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.”
