The Marques de Murietta 2011 Dalmau Rioja, a 92 pointer from Wine Spectator has been billed as one of Rioja's new breed of Premium Super Cuvees.
You can taste it at Bleeding Heart's Marques De Murrieta Magnum Club dinner at The Crypt, hosted by Mark Bingley, Master of Wine who represents Murietta, one of Rioja's oldest and most esteemed Bodegas, in the UK and is renowned for being one of the most entertaining presenters in the country.
The seven wines tasted will be accompanied by a five course gourmet menu created by Julian Marhsall (executive head chef of Bleeding Heart Restaurants).
The evening starts at 7pm in the magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place adjoining Bleeding Heart Yard, with aperitifs of Pazo Barrantes 2014, an Albariño star that is undoubtedly one of the flagship wines of the Rías Baixas D.O.
