So, many years ago in retail, I used to sell Muga wines. At the time, I thought they were pretty good, reliable standard-bearers for Rioja. Never felt that the Seleccion Especial was worth double the standard Reserva, but still a good wine.
A few years back, I had a Wine Society parcel of Reserva museum stock, at something like 20 years old. That really was something. Prado Enea I have found quite variable, from sublime to closed to oxidised (and credit to TWS for the no questions asked refund). The rose seems pretty good value for money to me, and the white is great, if you like that oaky style (which I do).
Why am I posting this? Last week I took a delivery of 2010 Reserva and Seleccion Especial. Both are excellent. The Especial has a real extra depth of fruit, high tannin, higher (balanced) acidity, and both, I would think, could last another 10 years+. With cost at the time (around 2015 if memory serves) of something like £12 and £20, I’m not sure you could find better vfm, if you’re looking for a full bodied, ageworthy red. And with current 2004/5 vintage in magnum at £55, I reckon that has to be a bargain with the extra bottle age.
How about you, what is your best value TWS wine?
