CASTILLO YGAY GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL IS EEN WIJN UIT RIOJA

Eén van de uitzonderlijke "El Podio" wijnen in Guia Peñin 2018.

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial wordt gemaakt door topwijnhuis Marques de Murrieta en heeft 26 maanden gerijpt op Amerikaans eikenhout. Het is een expressieve, klassieke Rioja van grote klasse met aroma's van rijp zwart fruit, cederhout, kruiden en aardse tonen. De prachtige tannines zijn goed geïntegreerd en de afdronk is waanzinnig en intens.

Uitstekende combinatie met rood vlees, wild, boeuf bourguignon, tournedos, paté, jamón en harde kazen. Op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2040 nog verder ontwikkelen. De optimale serveertemperatuur is 16°C.

2010 is door Winespectator tot beste Spaanse Wijn en verkozen tot beste wijn van de wereld, maar 2011 zal zeker daar niet onder doen.

 
The Wine Advocate over 2010

"I had very high expectations for the 2010 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial, and the wine delivered as expected. 2010 was one of the finest vintages in Rioja in recent years, and this blend of Tempranillo with 15% Mazuelo (Cariñena) has to be one of the finest modern day Castillo de Ygays. The grapes come from a plot planted in 1966 at 485 meters in altitude, the highest in the estate, and the vines yielded 3,500 kilos per hectare. The two varieties fermented separately in stainless steel for 11 days, and the wine spent 26 months in a mixture of American and French oak barrels. I tasted the 2009 next to this 2010, and I had also had a bottle two nights before. So, I was able to compare this with the 2009, which was a very different year, as 2010 was a cooler year and a priori a more adequate year for long-aging wines like this Gran Reserva. The difference was the vegetative cycle, as the vinification and élevage was the same. This is sleeker and sharper, less developed and livelier than the 2009, which already shows some signs of "old wine" with aromas that remind me of the old classical Rioja reds. It has greatness and finesse and is a very attractive wine with all the stuffing and balance that is needed for a long (and positive) aging in bottle. This is one of the finest modern day vintages of Castillo Ygay. This is going to develop in the direction of the classical bottlings from yesteryear. 

Marqués de Murrieta will ferment 2018 wines in their brand new winery at the Ygay estate. In 2017 they celebrated their 165th anniversary, and they have been able to keep an updated, classical profile in their wines."

Luis Gutiérrez, Feb. 2020


Tim Atikin (UK): 

97 points. Following on from the 2005, 2007 and 2010 releases, this is another stylish, complex and world-class red. The heat of the vintage has put plenty of flesh on the bones, complementing the savoury, spicy elegance. The tannins and acidity add balance and refinement.
