99 points “Very complex. Full and intense with fantastic depth and power. It goes on for minutes. It is a wine that exudes tradition but gives a sense of modernity with precise winemaking.” – James Suckling

97 points “I had very high expectations for the 2010 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial and the wine delivered as expected. 2010 was one of the finest vintages in Rioja in recent years and this blend of Tempranillo with 15% Mazuelo (Cariñena) has to be one of the finest modern-day Castillo Ygays.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

97 points “2010 will be remembered in the great vineyards of Europe as a classic year elegant restraint and wonderful harmonious balance even in youth its key characteristics. The Ygay fits this template perfectly; plums and sloes hints of blueberry and cassis then figs cocoa and sousbois a distinct balsamic note to underline provenance. The Mazuelo etches fresh acidity and a powerful finish leaving the Tempranillo the opportunity to dance flamboyantly on the mid-palate the bringer of joy and harmony.” – Decanter 

96 points “The latest in a run of brilliant releases under the Castillo Ygay label this is a cuvée of Tempranillo with 15% Mazuelo from the La Plana vineyard planted in 1950. Still young with plenty of new American and French oak vivid acidity notes of green malt blackberry and forest floor and impressive freshness depth and concentration.” – Tim Atkin MW

The critic reviews show just how good this wine is. 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 24 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.
