CVNE 'Imperial' Rioja Reserva 2016/17

CVNE 'Imperial' Rioja Reserva 2016/17

SPAIN

CVNE is unquestionably one of Rioja's finest producers. And this is one of the very best Rioja Reservas around. Interestingly, it's named 'Imperial' as it was initially exported to the UK in imperial-sized pint measures. It's made from some of their very best grapes, which are picked by hand, and aged in both French and American oak to create a truly sensuous experience. Expect aromas of vanilla, mulberry and spice, flavours of stewed blackcurrants and a long finish. Decant it for at least an hour before enjoying its fine tannins with lamb. In 2022, this wine won an IWC award for the 2017 vintage.

First tasted Imperial Rioja Reserva in a Restaurant in Madrid many years ago. It was recommended to us by our waiter & proved to be absolutely sensational. When we found that we could purchase it through Majestic, we grabbed the chance. Always superb.

Unbelievably good Rioja.  Vina Ardanza and Muga both make great Rioja but for us

This is a fine wine - a huge gobful with really decent length. The stench of this wine is just a delightful hint at the flavour to follow and does not disappoint.  Black friut predominates

Had a dinner party last night with slow cooked shoulder of lamb. Opened 3 bottles of Imperial at lunchtime to breathe all afternoon. It was a good decision. Fantastic wine! Smooth

Far too bold and not at all smooth for my taste. Would take a Muga
