Front and back

Review:

Castillo Ygay is the Marqués de Murrieta flagship and the most senior of all its wines, a century-old label among Rioja wines and an icon amid its Gran Reservas. A wine of exceptionally good quality, very elegant, solely produced in the best vintage years.

The varieties partaking in its blend are the Tempranillo (86%) and Mazuelo (with the amount increased to 14% in this vintage), using selected grapes from the La Plana vineyard, located in the highest part of the exceptional Ygay estate, at an altitude of 485 metres. The two varieties are matured separately, the Tempranillo in American oak barrels for 28 months, and the Mazuelo, also for 28 months, but in French oak barrels. Both wines carry out the initial phase of their ageing process in new barrels and, once the final blend has been obtained and before bottling, the wine spends six months in concrete tanks. Lastly, the wine is refined in bottle for a minimum of three years.

Castillo Ygay is a long and profound wine. It has astonishing complexity, with an intensely aromatic nose and a caressingly satin texture on the palate. A Gran Reserva that boasts muscle, an elegant bouquet, fruit intensity and impeccable balance. Fresh, concentrated and with a long life ahead, over many decades. Quality of this sort has a price, but the pleasure it gives is guaranteed.

NOTE: We recommend decanting half an hour before serving.

Intenso color burdeos con reflejos atejados. Brillante y con una lágrima elegante, de caída lenta. Bajo un intenso y concentrado conjunto de aromas procedentes de su larga crianza, con unos intensos tostados y ahumados, con múltiples especiados, notas de cuero, tabaco y de cacaos, aparece una fruta roja muy madura. Complejo y armónico a la vez. Un vino extraordinario. Entrada envolvente con la fruta más expresiva y carnosa que en nariz entremezclada con las maderas perfectamente integradas. Perfecto equilibrio, con suave acidez y taninos pulidos. Un vino muy, muy elegante.Leyenda viva de Rioja, que ha sabido mantenerse a lo largo de tres siglos, destinado a romper moldes por su sorprendente viveza.
