Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva 2010, Ranked Number 1 Wine in the World by Wine Spectator

Marqués de Murrieta is celebrating this prestigious accolade, which its wine received at Wine Spectator’s New York Wine Experience after competing with 11,000+ wines

The 40th edition of Wine Spectator's New York Wine Experience, which was sold out this year and is often referred to as the Oscars of wine, has come to a close. At this year's event, more than 11,000 wines from every corner of the globe were tasted and competed for major accolades. The highest accolade, however, went to a Spanish wine.

Ygay, best wine in the World

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva 2010, from the winery Marqués de Murrieta in La Rioja, was unanimously chosen as the number 1 wine in the world. It was also the only Spanish wine to rank in the top 10.
At the awards ceremony, the winery's owner, Vicente Dalmau Cebrian-Sagarriga, described the award as "representing a major milestone for all Spanish wines as well as for Marqués de Murrieta and the family that is spearheading a project which represents quality and expertise from Spain."
The tasting committee evaluated a wide range of properties, from quality and wineries' track records to a so-called "X factor," which takes into consideration the enthusiasm, passion, and feelings that a wine awakens in the tasters.
According to Wine Spectator, Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva 2010 deserves to be crowned the World's Best Wine in view of " its history, its character and for reminding us about the value of commitment, hard work and perseverance."
