The Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía 2012 came top in a recent Decanter Panel Tasting of White Rioja, scoring an outstanding 96 points!
Sarah Jane Evans MW descried the wine as “a modern classic: the palate builds with layers of French oak, white flowers and sweet spices. Supple, well-rounded, very complex. Murrieta is doing great things with its reds, but don’t miss this”.
This superb tasting note and score was given in an article which also reveres the Castillo Ygay 1986 Blanco, a wine venerated for its incredible freshness and ability to age. Marqués de Murrieta’s second white, the Capellanía, is grown from the same vines as this celebrated white Rioja, and this high score of 96 points shows that this precious insight into the famous Ygay Blanco is not to be missed!
