Imperial Reserva

Imperial Reserva

Ref: A076609

Haro, Rioja Alta

Bright, deep ruby colour. The nose shows unexpectedly marked Tempranillo characteristics, with undertones of blackberry and liquorice. On the palate it has sufficient body and structure to give great length and finesse in the finish.

Tempranillo 85%, Graciano 10%, Mazuelo 5%

Imperial is one of the big brands of Spain. It is a true classic in Rioja and was first produced in the twenties. Its name comes after a special bottling for the English market, in a measure called 'Pinta Imperial' or 'Imperial Pint' (an Imperial pint, half a litre approximately).

From 1928 these wines could be found at the top restaurants and shops all over Spain. It has always been characterised for its very high and constant quality, in every vintage.

The Imperial range includes a 'Reserva' and a 'Gran Reserva' and is only produced in exceptional vintages.

In 1879, two brothers set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created.

The Cuné winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling and it was one of the first wineries of Rioja to bottle its own wines. In 1900, the winery had an extraordinary aging capacity of 80,000 bottles, which was most unusual at the time, as most wineries were selling their wines as soon as possible.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
