Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial 2007
The legendary Ygay property is located at an altitude of 500m near to the city of Logroño in the heart of the Rioja Alta. The 2007 Gran Reserva Especial is a blend of 86% Tempranillo and 14% Mazuelo. After fermentation in stainless steel the wine has been aged in American barrels for 28 months, and then held back in bottle until now, the time of its triumphant release.
This is an absolute archetype of classic Rioja, not inappropriate given the history and pedigree of the property. Predominant over everything is the sheer quality of the fruit, born out by rich black fruit and balsamic aromas and seductive hints of vanilla . Earth, spice and black cherry dance with dexterity over the palate, and there is great finesse and charm on the finish. Just starting to drink, this will be good for a decade or more.
