The 2011 CVNE Imperial shows exactly why this wine is so highly prized. It offers spice and deep, rounded fruit, notes of tobacco and dried herbs, alongside precise acidity and a beautiful texture. An outstanding Rioja.
I'm always looking forward to tasting CVNE's Gran Reserva bottlings, especially the 2011 Imperial Gran Reserva, as the year was highly praised, and I was very curious to see how it behaved. It's a classical blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo that matured in barrel for two years. It has good depth and complexity in the nose, nicely layered, very balsamic and tertiary. It feels elegant and harmonious. The palate is surprisingly fresh and vibrant, with finesse, freshness, fine and mostly resolved tannins and a fine thread of acidity that holds and lifts up the finish. 50,000 bottles were filled in June 2014.
… this is the latest in a series of brilliant Imperial Gran Reservas: serious, dense, and showing old vine concentration, with sweet liquorice, blackberry and bramble flavours, a lick of oak and chalky intensity.
