1986 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Blanco, Marqués de Murrieta, Rioja
This release of the 1986 Gran Reserva Especial Blanco spent a mindblowing 252 months in oak, followed by 67 months in concrete and finally 3 years in bottle before release. The nose is one of the best I’ve ever experienced - how is this 32 years old? It’s so fresh, while the texture on the palate makes you think this could be either red or white. There are notes of orange peel, cured lemons, lanolin and nuts (though it’s not faintly oxidised). It’s no exaggeration to say it lasts for minutes on end. It’s ethereal; otherworldly.
