Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
We first tried this wine when on holiday in Spain this year. We liked it so much that we ordered a case from Vinissimus when we got home. We were not disappointed. it is very well balanced and smooth and we have continued buying a number of times. Well done Vinissimus!by: Vinissimus Customer (26/05/2019) - Vintage 2015

Today, 165 years later, the impressive Ygay estate seems untouched by the passage of time, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Nowadays, Vicente D.
