Castillo Ygay Rioja Gran Reserva Especial 2009
- 97 points, “This is another stylish, complex and world-class red.” – Tim Atkin
- 96 points, “This is a great classical Rioja for the long haul.” – Wine Advocate
The critic reviews show just how good this wine is. But what they don’t tell you is that this legendary wine was not produced in 2008, so demand will be even higher for the 2009, making this even more sought-after. Compared with other world famous wines of this quality, Ygay still offers startlingly good value. The wine is made from Tempranillo and Mazuelo (Carignan) sourced from the La Plana vineyard, high up in the Ygay Estate. Aged for 26 months in oak barrels, it has an unbelievable balance. A must-try for Rioja lovers; think earthy flavours like game, aged beef, slow-cooked mushrooms, roasted cauliflower and root vegetable puree.
Established in 1852, Marqués de Murrieta is one of the oldest and most highly regarded wineries in Rioja Alta. Luciano Murrieta produced the first ever Rioja, exported before anyone else in the region, and built a grand “château” on the Ygay Estate inspired by Bordeaux. Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial is the pinnacle of their production and has phenomenal ageing potential.
