Marqués de Murrieta: Ygay, Dalmau & Capellania all tasted

Marqués de Murrieta is one Spain’s most revered Rioja producers, so a masterclass of its flagship wines - including Castillo Ygay - with president and owner Vicente Dalmau Cebrián-Sagarriga was not to be missed. Simon Field MW reviews the wines.

The Marquis of Murrieta was the first and most influential of the Spanish aristocracy who took it upon themselves to remodel the Spanish vinous template with a distinctly Bordelais flavour. All this started in 1852 and although the Bodega is no longer in eponymous hands the current owner, the deliciously flamboyant Vicente Dalmau Cebrián-Sagarriga, the tenth Conde de Creixell, is the perfect ambassador for the newly renovated property.
