This most conservative of the Rioja bodegas produces traditional reds and whites which are exposed to considerable periods of oak-ageing. There are some 300 ha of vineyards and production is sizeable at 250,000 cases or so a year. Gran Reservas are now all released under the Castillo d’Ygay label and Reservas are now simply Murrieta. The white Capellania is citrusy with very marked vanilla essence – oaky but good. The red Reserva and Gran Reserva can be more variable with occasionally very high volatile acidity. At their best they are splendidly rich, particularly the Castillo d’Ygay Especial which can be of a different order. In a concession to new-wave Rioja styles a premium red, Dalmau, is now produced. It is firm, structured and above all elegant and it should develop well with 5 or 6 years’ cellaring. In Rías Baixas a peachy, lightly exotic white Pazo de Barrantes is made, which should be drunk young. This has been joined by a single vineyard example La Comtesse de Pazo Barrantes.
