2010 MARQUES de MURRIETA CASTILLO YGAY GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL RIOJA

There are few connections closer to the heart of Rioja than Marqués de Murrieta, whose founder, Luciano Murrieta, was one of the first winemakers to establish a winery in Rioja in the mid 19th century after studying winemaking in Bordeaux. His legacy lives on today in the perennially high-scoring Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja, with the 2007 vintage scoring 98 points by James Suckling and the 2010 release clinching the #1 spot on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list last year.

2007 MARQUES de MURRIETA CASTILLO YGAY GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL RIOJA

There are few connections closer to the heart of Rioja than Marqués de Murrieta, whose founder, Luciano Murrieta, was one of the first winemakers to establish a winery in Rioja in the mid 19th century after studying winemaking in Bordeaux. His legacy lives on today in the perennially high-scoring Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja, with the 2007 vintage scoring 98 points by James Suckling and the 2010 release clinching the #1 spot on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list last year.

Gran Reserva is the most prolonged aging classification in Rioja, requiring a minimum of two years in barrel followed by three years in bottle before release. Castillo Ygay’s 2007 vintage has seen an additional eight and a half years of bottle development, transforming the wine into pure hedonism with incredibly soft and supple tannins, luscious flavors, and an ethereal finish.

2009 MARQUES de MURRIETA CASTILLO YGAY GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL RIOJA

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 comes from the winery’s highest elevation plantings on a plateau that was planted in the 1940’s and 1950’s. 

The 2009 Castillo Ygay is a full-throttle, deep and enchanting blend that’s layered in old-world complexity.  According to the Wine Spectator, 2009 was the best vintage in Rioja since 2005 and produced outstanding wines with beautifully ripe fruit.

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, so this 2009 is their current release.
