Eine tiefdunkle, ins Schwarz gehende Robe, violette Reflexe. Im Bukett wird Kraft und Finesse zu einem sagenhaften Charme verwoben. Aromen von Cassiskonfitüre, Brombeere, Erdbeere und Himbeergelee sowie feine Noten des Eichenholzausbaus bestimmen das Duftbild. Einfach superb! Am Gaumen besticht zuerst die weiche Seidigkeit und die finessenreiche Struktur. Dann treten kraftvolle und zugleich feine junge Tannine auf, die von reifer Frucht (Brombeere, Heidelbeeren, Steinobst) umgarnt werden. Im Finale mit enorm langen Ausklang. Fazit: ein moderner Rioja der auf der ganz großen Weinbühne zu Hause ist! Trinkreife 2016-2035.
94 Punkte Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 218 (Apr 2015): Same as they didn't do Dalmau in 2008 they didn't bottle it in the 2010 vintage, and the next one will be the 2011 Dalmau Reserva, which will be released in March-April 2015. Dalmau is the most "international" of all their wines, but is a wine from Ygay because the Cabernet they have in their vineyards is now 56 years old and is part of the estate and you also feel more the smoky notes and the earthy, peat-like minerality. The maximum amount of Cabernet Sauvignon (or other experimental varieties, generically referred to as "Others," any varieties that were planted before 1956) is 15% and it also contains 6% Graciano, the rest being, of course Tempranillo. The varieties are fermented and aged in barrel separately, then assembled and matured in cement vats for a good 8-9 months. This 2011 is considered internally a perfect vintage for Ygay and has a very Atlantic, Bordeaux-like nose that is serious and concentrated. This is a cuvée that used to be quite oaky, but this has changed radically and the earthy personality is much stronger, and the oak is perfectly integrated, and even if it's extremely young is perfectly drinkable and showing classical aromas of cigar box, cedar wood and lead pencil. The texture is creamy and even if the tannins are velvety and the acidity is fine, just the complexity you will gain with a couple of years in bottle would payback a little patience. It's a matter of personal preference and the style in this wine is quite strong, but this is objectively a great vintage for Dalmau. 20,000 bottles produced. I visited the revamped facilities of Marqués de Murrieta in the outskirts of Logroño. After eight years they finished restoring the historical Castillo de Ygay building, all done with great taste. But the real focus has been on their vineyards and their wines, which are back at the top of the Rioja hierarchy. María Vargas, the winemaker, is ecstatic about the quality of the wines from 2011, which she calls perfect 2011, like 2005 and 2001. I found all the wines to be showing great, but perhaps the highlight is the 2010 Reserva, which might be the best vintage for this wine ever. The best part of it all is that it's available in good quantities and at an unbelievable price for the quality this vintage offers. Next time I hope to be able to taste and publish the note on the bottled 1986 Castillo de Ygay Gran Reserva Blanco which should be released in 2016 to coincide with its 30th anniversary.
