CASTILLO YGAY WHITE GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL 1986

Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva Especial 1986, a real gem made by Marqués de Murrieta, has been rated 100 Points by Robert Parker. This is the first time such an important accolade is given to a white wine is Spain.

After being tasted by Luis Gutierrez, the critic responsible for reviewing Spanish wines in Robert Parker's ‘The Wine Advocate’, he states that it is "one of the best white wines I've ever tasted in my whole life." Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva Especial 1986 stands as the only wine that has reached the highest score, an even more difficult achievement for a white wine.

Varieties: 97% Viura, 3% Malvasía.

Harvest: Production began in early October, at a slow and progressive pace, as required by the weather conditions which, in turn, contributed to the optimum development of the grapes and also helped to achieve the optimum moment of ripeness.

Vinification: The whole cluster of grapes was crushed and then pressed in a wooden twin-screw vertical wine press. Fermentation took place in American oak barrels.

Ageing process: 252 months in 225 litres American oak barriques. 67 months in a concrete tank.

Bottling date: 29th January 2014.

Recommended serving temperature: Between 14ºC (57F) and 15ºC (59F).

Parker · Wine Advocate (Usa): 100 puntos. It seems to be getting younger and younger with time in the glass; I have no doubt we're talking about a white for the next 50 years. The wine is simply stunning.

James Suckling (Usa): 94 points. "Fabulous aromas of crushed berry and dark fruits with walnuts, hazelnuts, and ginger. Cinnamon and honey melon too. Full-bodied, very tight and firm. Linear backbone of fruit and tannins. Very long and racy. 22 months in American oak (six months new and then racked into used). Beautiful now but needs another two or three years to soften. A triumph."

Wine Advocate - Parker (Usa): 93 points. There is gob-smacking precision and elegance here. It’s a pure wine with no oak that is super harmonious, floral and fragrant. I simply fell in love with the nose. Now onto the palate. The entry is really fluid, and then it explodes in your mouth, filling it along a thread of fine acidity making it long and tasty. It has the same astonishing purity and harmony, focus and precision found in the nose. This has to be the best Reserva from Murrieta in recent times. Bravo! One million bottles produced, but all the wine is one single lot and all the bottles you can find are exactly the same just they are bottled continuously for four months. Mind boggling quality for the price asked.-- Luis Gutierrez

Guía Peñín (Spain): 92 points.

Wine Spectator (Usa): 90 points. Spicy aromas lead to flavors of vanilla, cherry, fresh herb and mineral in this expressive red. Though oaky notes are prominent, there’s a core of focused fruit, and the light structure is fresh and balanced. Graceful and alluring. Drink now through 2021. 5,750 cases imported.—T.M.
