At the top of the ageing regime lies the Gran Reserva category, where the wines are subject to a minimum total ageing time of 60 months with 24 months minimum time spent in barrel. However, Muriel Gran Reserva is exposed to 30 months in American and French oak barrels and the wine matures in the bottle for three years before it is released to the market.
Muriel Gran Reserva is showing concentrated and complex notes of prune, raisin, spices, roasted coffee, caramel with subtle leather and tobacco. The wine needs at least two to three hours of airing time to show its full potential. It pairs well with rack of lamb, pork chops and hearty stews.
