2010 Murrieta Castillo de Ygay Rioja Gran Reserva Especial
Chris Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Delicioso. Tasted two times and from the classic and vaunted vintage of 2010, this is one of the highly-anticipated releases from Rioja, as we do not see much of this Gran Reserva in the US. The historic Castillo Ygay is always made from grapes sourced from La Plana single-vineyard, planted in 1950 and located on a plateau at the highest point of Finca Ygay, at nearly 500 meters above sea level. In the cooler and more classic 2010 vintage the Ygay Gran Reserva is a more finessed and energetic expression. The aromatics on this wine jump across the table and scream Spain. There is a purity of fruit that meets the savory side of Spain and you can expect to find red and black fruit, dried berries, Asian spices, chalky minerality, tomato leaf, red fruit, herbs, it’s all packed in. Serious wine at another level. With its awesome depth, this is a wine that can please the Burghead, the ardent Bordeaux collector, and Rhône Ranger. And while traditional, it is not as extreme as Lopez. Old school wine enthusiasts will fall in love with this wine.”

A contender for the best Spanish white wine ever made, this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva was released with thirty years of maturity. It is a spellbinding wine that slowly unfolds its kaleidoscopic layers of tropical and citrus fruits, crushed minerals, salted toffee, savory herbs, earthy truffles, white flower petals and too many more notes to name. Silky yet electric with acidity, this wine glides across the palate with a creamy mouth-feel; it’s an indescribable treat for the senses, and it will drink for decades. A blend of 97% Viura and 3% Malvasía deriving from a vineyard planted in 1945, grapes were crushed in a screwtop wine press and fermented in American oak. The wine aged for about 21 years in American oak barriques, about seven years in concrete tanks, and about three years in bottle; this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva went to market in 2016. more info
