MARQUES DE MURRIETA

THE WINERY

The origin of the winery Marquis of Murrieta It is linked to the origin of Rioja wine since in 1852 Don Luciano Murrieta made the first Rioja wines in addition to being the first to export it outside the national territory. Don Luciano, appointed Marquis by King Amadeo of Savoy thanks to his work in Rioja, traveled to Bordeaux to learn the winemaking techniques that he brought back to Spain. He established the concept of a French château on the Ygay estate where he ordered the construction of the emblematic Ygay Castle.
In 1983, Vicente D. Cebrián-Sagarriga, tenth Earl of Creixell, collected the witness, who updated the winery and continued the legacy of the Marquis of Murrieta. After his death, his son, Vicente D. Cebrián-Sagarriga, current Count of Creixell, assumes, together with his sister Cristina, the management of the winery, accompanied by a young and qualified team, and completely updates the Riojan winery. Over the years the Conde de Creixell family has become a perfect link to maintain the balance between tradition and modernity, placing Marqués de Murrieta in the 21st century in a privileged position in the Rioja wines of the world.

the vineyard

 

The origin of the winery Marquis of Murrieta is linked to the origin of Rioja wine. Its founder, the Marquis of Murrieta, brought the Bordeaux production techniques to Spain, made his first wine in 1852 in Logroño and settled in the Finca Ygay. Located in the heart of Rioja, this estate houses the Castillo de Ygay, headquarters of the Marqués de Murrieta wineries, surrounded by 300 hectares of surrounding vineyards.

In 1983, the Cebrián-Sagarriga family collected the witness, and in 2007, they began a laborious restoration work of the Ygay Castle that culminated in 2014, the date on which the winery reopened its doors. Its visitors then begin to enjoy guided tours that begin in the vineyard, run through rehabilitated centuries-old areas and end with a professional tasting of their wines accompanied by haute cuisine.

Rising as one of the most emblematic centuries-old buildings for industrial use in Europe, the Castillo de Ygay houses inside all the winemaking history of Marqués de Murrieta, a history that laid the foundations of the DOCa Rioja. Inside, you can visit from the historical wine cellar of production or aging rooms in barrels, to its wine collection from 1852 to the present day, passing through the labels and historical documents of Marqués de Murrieta, all forming a private collection of incalculable v

General information

Own vineyards: Dalmau comes from Pago Canajas, a centennial vineyard in the upper-middle part of our Finca Ygay, at 465 meters of altitude. Its clayey-calcareous soil enjoys a great presence of boulders on the surface favoring the optimal ripening of its grapes. At the end of the veraison, we thinned the clusters, limiting production to no more than one kilo per plant and selecting bunches of small grain of high concentration. Grape varieties: 70% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Graciano.

Selected manual harvest in palots of small quantities ensuring that the grape reaches the winery quickly in perfect condition. The Tempranillo on September 16, the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested on September 20 and the Graciano on September 25. Fermentation of each variety separately at controlled temperature for 11 days. Tempranillo ferments in small stainless steel tanks and Graciano and Cabernet Sauvignon in a small oak vat. We practice pumping over and delestage. 19 months in new French oak barrels from Allier.

Paid wine of limited production from a centennial vineyard. Reflection of the most modern facet of Marqués de Murrieta, a rigorous selection of its grapes followed by a meticulous extraction and aging of a year and a half in new French oak barrels give it a harmonious and intense character.

Tasting Notes Dalmau

Dalmau is a wine of limited elaboration, full in nuances and intensity, showing the most modern face of the winery. Its nose is complex, velvety, with an explosion of aromas of wild fruits, dark chocolate and mineral notes, elegantly combined with creamy toasts from its passage through the French barrel. An elegant and unusual wine that impresses in every way, full-bodied and very harmonious. Of magnificent balance to make a powerful wine fluid.
