James Suckling Top 100 Wines of Spain 2021 #10

A limited edition wine from selected barrels and created to last over time.

Size: 1.5L

Grape Variety

80% Tempranillo, 9% Graciano, 9% Mazuelo, 2% Garnacha.

Tasting Notes

Over a base of balsamic aromas, there are hints of spices, ripe black berries, cassis, and figs. The delicate aromatic range is completed with mineral and light earth notes.

The wine is refined and it has a lively palate, with silky texture that is wrapped by polished tannins and a long, persistent finish.

“A well-structure wine that has long to live. Faithful expression of the vintage and our Ygay Estate” María Vargas – Technical Manager

98 Points: James Suckling, Feb 2022 | Top 100 Wines of Spain 2021 #10 MARQUÉS DE MURRIETA RIOJA FINCA YGAY GRAN RESERVA 2015

This is historical Rioja in the glass with dark-berry, Spanish-cedar, bark, mahogany and light earth aromas that follow through to a full body with firm, fine tannins that are layered and intense. It really is multilayered, with a citrus and cedar aftertaste. Wonderful length and composure.

Description

MARQUÉS DE MURRIETA GRAN RESERVA

It is only produced from selected vintages, Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva represents the perfect balance between classicism and modernity.

It is made with tempranillo, graciano, mazuelo and garnacha in the ideal proportion to offer the wine the potential necessary to age more than five years between American oak barrels and bottle.

Own Vineyards

Grapes are sourced from our Ygay Estate: 300 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery in the southernmost point of Rioja Alta with mainly calcareous-clay soils. Altitude ranges from 320 to 485 meters.

Manual harvest From september 14 to october 16, 2015.

Winemaking

Grape varieties are vinified separately. Previously de-stemmed, the grapes ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation takes around 8 and 12 days during which, pumping over and punching down operations are regularly carried out to ensure the contact between juice and skins. Afterwards, the solid parts of the grapes are squashed in a vertical press, by a gentle process that extracts color and ripe tannins from the grape skins.

Ageing process

The wine is aged for 27 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.

Pairing

Duck Magret baked with red wine reduction, redcurrants, raspberries and honey mustard. Red mullet in double cooking with truffle mustard and its concentrate.

Number of bottles: 62,418 (75cl), 1,430 (1.5l), 150 (3l), 20 (5l) y 4 (12l).

Alcohol: 14% Vol
