Characteristics of Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva

Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by the winery  Marqués de Murrieta in Logroño , D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Marqués de Murrieta is a classical Riojan winery with over 160 years of experience in the winemaking industry. Its founder travelled to the region of Bordeaux to learn the techniques of winemaking and transfer its know-how to La Rioja. He also built a castle in the French Chateau style in his farm of Ygay.

The winery is in accordance with the exemplary nature of the vineyard, where they use the most advanced oenological and winemaking techniques, quality control, and where they carry out constant research work. Marques de Murrieta only produces wine from their own vineyard. Their secret lies in adapting each process of cultivation and winemaking to the characteristics of each plot and variety. At the same time, they wisely integrate all of them to achieve harmonious wines that reflect the genuine seal of the house.

The uniqueness of Marques de Murrieta can mainly be found in the exclusivity of its farm, Finca Ygay: 300 hectares of their own vineyards integrated in the winery, which allows the most absolute control of their raw material.

Located south of the Rioja Alta, with a difference of altitude from 320 metres to 485 metres, they enjoy a privileged continental climate tempered to the north by the mountain range Sierra de Cantabria.

 

Marques de Murrieta Gran Reserva is a wine made from Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Grenache and Graciano, from vineyards located in they farm, Finca Ygay.

The harvest is carried out manually. Once it arrives at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, and then they are vatted in stainless steel deposits for 9 days, with constant pump-overs and punch-downs. Fermentation is carried out in these stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. After the fermentation has finished, grapes are slightly pressed with their skins.

This wine is aged for 24 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.

 

Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva is an expressive, elegant and balanced wine. A wine marked by tradition that shows all the virtues of the classical Riojan wines.

Tasting notes Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
