Passion for Spanish wine



Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva 1986 Blanco

Marqués de Murrieta, Rioja

The wine, which feels extremely young after having been aged in barrel for 22 years, was bottled in January 2014 and feels very different from other old Rioja whites such as López de Heredia's. Deep gold colour. Preserved lemon, orange peel and spicy aromas (clove, white pepper) are followed by an opulent, almost magical palate bursting with acidity combining great definition, length and purity. Polished texture with a lovely creamy note on the finish. A truly unique wine. 19.0 points
