K&L Notes

Marqués de Murrieta was one of the two oldest, historical bodegas to put Rioja on the map in the mid-19th century (the other one was Marqués de Riscal). It is also an estate wine with fruit coming from various parcels on their property just outside of Logroño. This gran reserva is marked by a healthy proportion of Mazuelo (around 7%), which thrives in this slightly warmer, drier area just outside of Logroño. Always a fantastic wine, truly one of the great Gran Reservas, Castillo Ygay´s 2009 is widely considered to be amongst the best of a very good vintage.

    One of the true greats, and for the best of reasons, Ygay is the type of wine that creates obsessives and inspires mythologies. Balances the tough act of bringing out the best in classic Rioja and embracing the modern stylings of the region. Cinnamon and toast and oak and Spanish moss and vanilla and clove all rush out of the glass aromatically, prefacing the incredible buttered bread, creme and soft dust wrapped around the red fruit on the palate. World Class winemaking is obvious in the firm but open structure that fleshes out near the finish seemingly to emphasize the quality in the glass. Drink now, drink later, drink with food or by itself - Just Drink
