Muga Selección Especial 2006
The Muga family would like to share this limited edition of 832 bottles that have been kept in an optimal state of preservation in the historic bottle rack of Bodegas Muga. Now, in October 2022, they are releasing them to the market so that all Muga Seleccion Especial lovers can enjoy them.
The 2006 Seleccion Especial spends thirty months in oak, the first year in French oak and then is racked into “neutral,” three to seven year oak for the remainder. The nose is well-defined with ripe blackberry, bilberry, iodine and a touch of vanilla derived from the wood.
The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry, leather and a touch of sage, building nicely towards a voluminous, tannic finish that easily supports the weight of toasty fruit. It deserves several years of cellaring. Drink 2016-2025.
