Reviews of Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva 2011
Deep colour at first sight. It disclosed a very nice smell of white roses. It seemed a bit salty, it reminded me the sea.
The Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva offers wonderful tinges. Good smell of coffee and toffee. The texture of this wine from Bodegas Muga was oily.
Good wine with a dish of lentils.
The colour was between red and brown. Smell of gooseberries. This 1968 is quite like the previous vintage.
