Marques de Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserve Especial

I was lucky enough to taste the 1986 Ygay last night at a sommelier competition.

It is the finest white wine I have ever drunk.

21 years on oak
6+ years in cement tanks
2-3 years in bottle

very high acidity, feels and tastes young (which is pretty amazing). It auses salivation (this wine needs food, really, I wish I could have had something like foie with is). Very dense dried apple, soft floral notes, dried pineapple, a soft soft lemon streak. Waxy/creamy. Exceptionally long on the palate.

I won't be having it again until I either hit the lottery or retire. But what a wine.
