Muchada-Léclapart Elixir 2019
Regular price $95.00
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.
Élixir is our life perfume: floral, demure, fine and with a beautiful tension between the nose and the mouth. Made from 40% muscat of Chipiona, 60% old palomino. Vineyards of 40 and 60 years. Fermented and vinified in used Bordeaux barrels for 9-10 months. Spontaneous fermentation; without rectification of any kind.
A complex, densely packed and fruity nose of jasmine, honeysuckle, boiled lemon, guava, paw paw, candied ginger, hops and chamomile. There’s an interestingly sweet and earthy coffee-like note hiding in the background. In the mouth it’s voluptuous and broad shouldered, spiced with ginger and flows with a creamy wave of vanilla laced fruit that echoes the nose. Fine tannins and well matched acidity to freshen and balance. Lots going on. Awesome! - GM Wine Imports
