2007 MARQUES de MURRIETA CASTILLO YGAY GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL RIOJA

$200.00 $139.99

A living legend of the world’s best Rioja, which has survived three centuries… About the only thing richer than Marques de Murrieta’s flagship Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva, is the history of this incredible estate. The family is linked to the origins of Rioja, and founder Luciano Murrieta was appointed Marquis by King Amadeo of Savoy, due his pioneering style of winemaking which he learned in Bordeaux. The super-high scoring Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva is one of the Most Popular Wines in the World, and comes from the winery’s highest elevation plantings on a plateau that was planted in the 1940’s and 1950’s.

The 2007 Castillo Ygay is a full-throttle, racy, intense and enchanting blend that’s layered in old-world complexity… it’s so polished, pure and just a perfectly Balanced Wine. (you have to try it, it’s so cool!)

Gran Reserva is the top designation in Rioja, where producers use their best grapes and age them for at least 2 years in wood and 3 years in bottle before release. But in this case, Especial takes it to an even higher level, only being produced in the best vintages, then aged 2 1/2 years in wood and 8 years in the bottle.

Rated 98 Points James Sucking … available in bottles and in OWC – Original Wood Case, wow! (please note: very limited)

JS98 | From James Suckling, “The aromas of this show an amazing freshness of flowers and herbs such as lavender, rosemary, and violet. Then it goes to raspberry, candy and currants. Black licorice too. A truly great wine on the nose. Full-bodied, racy and linear. So polished. It’s like a red ruby. 86% tempranillo and 14% mazuelo in the blend. For release in September 2015. Great length and future. Give it three years or so. Or decant two hours in advance.” JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS

WA95+ | From Robert Parker The Wine Advocate, “A worthy follow-up of the 2007, the 2007 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial will be released in late 2015. This is a cuvée of mostly Tempranillo with the balance of Mazuelo (Cariñena)… the wine is concentrated. This is still a baby, long and with depth and tannins that should melt in a couple of years. Compared with the 2005 it is fresher, perhaps not as concentrated, but for me the extra freshness compensates and puts it at a very similar quality level. And the rule of thumb is to wait at least ten years after the harvest to start uncorking any Castillo de Ygay. Cheap it is not, but very good value it is, for the quality it delivers…” ROBERT PARKER 95+ POINTS
