The President of the United States, Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle Obama, recently visited Spain. During their stay, the United States Embassy hosted a dinner in honour of the First Lady. The red wine chosen to celebrate her presence in Spain was Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial 2007.
The Castillo Ygay was chosen to accompany a sumptuous main course of Monkfish with Summer Vegetable Paella and Saffron Alioli.
Marqués de Murrieta’s Castillo Ygay is the Bodega’s most iconic wine, made from Tempranillo and Mazuelo grapes grown in an old single-vineyard called La Plana, located at 485 metres altitude in the Rioja Alta. It is exclusively used for this gran reserva wine, and only in the most excellent quality vintages.
