94 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Muga Reserva is Muga’s flagship wine, and the only red wine they produce vintage over vintage. This is one of Rioja’s most consistent cuvées qualitatively, as Muga declassifies all of their top vineyards, which in top vintages are reserved for Selección Especial, Prado Enea, Torre Muga, and Aro, into the Reserva in years when the top cuvées are not produced.
24 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barriques that are neutral. These barrels are produced from staves aged in the premises and coopered on the winery’s premises. Muga was the first winery in Spain to have an in-house cooperage. The wines are racked periodically throughout the ageing process to and fined with fresh egg whites (cracked by hand) before bottling. The wine is aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release, but most vintages see further bottle ageing.
