C.V.N.E. Imperial Rioja Gran Reserva 2011

The C.V.N.E. Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja has long held a reputation as one of the finest Rioja's and is only produced in exceptional years. The Imperial name came after a special bottling for the English market, in a measure called 'Pinta Imperial' or 'Imperial Pint' - approximately half a litre. Grapes for Imperial always come from C.V.N.E's own vineyards in the Rioja Alta where the vines are on average 20+ years old. This is a beautifully elegant blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo. The perfect balance of fruits of the forest and liquorice stand out along with aromas from pine, cigar leaf and sweet spices. The palate is marked by soft tannins and a long elegant finish. Imperial's capacity to age is remarkable and over the years the wine acquires complexity and nuance. Vintage after vintage, Imperials style is consistent: elegant, balanced and delicate. C.V.N.E. has vintages of Imperial dating back to 1917.
