“Marvellous aromas of crushed berries, tobacco, cedar and mushrooms. Some dried cheese. Then turns to flowers. Very complex. Full and intense with fantastic depth and power. It goes on for minutes. It is a wine that exudes tradition but gives a sense of modernity with precise winemaking. Two years in oak, one in concrete and three or four in bottle. Drink on release and age onwards." - Awarded 99 Points, James Suckling

“Ygay these days is a blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo, the latter making up 15% in this vintage. 2010 will be remembered in the great vineyards of Europe as a classic year, elegant restraint and wonderful harmonious balance, even in youth, its key characteristics. The Ygay fits this template perfectly; plums and sloes, hints of blueberry and cassis, then figs, cocoa and sousbois, a distinct balsamic note to underline provenance. The Mazuelo etches fresh acidity and a powerful finish, leaving the Tempranillo the opportunity to dance flamboyantly on the mid-palate, the bringer of joy and harmony." - Awarded 97 Points, Decanter

This vintage benefits from Rioja's decision to reduce yields for red wines by 10% in order to improve quality even further. The weather throughout 2010 was favourable resulting in a healthy and even harvest evident in the excellent balance and structure in the wines, perfect for long ageing.
The nose holds intense aromas of red fruits, truffle and hints of spice. The palate is full-bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel, great intensity and impeccable balance.
Perfect with a combination of dishes and flavours such as braised wood pigeon, Iberian ham, crispy codfish skin, cheese with black truffles, souffle potatoes, black pepper, cocoa or sour cherry jam.
