Cune Imperial Reserva 2011 (96JS) (750ML) ES Flag In Stock
Cune Imperial Reserva 2011 (96JS) (750ML)
96 Points, James Suckling: "Enticing aromas of ripe strawberries and raspberries with a mineral and salty character. Iodine, too. Tree bark. Full body, fine-grained and concentrated tannins and a long and clean, salty and light coffee finish. Great balance and structure. As it should be. Drink or hold." 94 Points, Zachys Buying Team: “This a rich, medium to full bodied expression from the Rioja Alta region and the ripe 2011 vintage. Where the wines of Lopez de Heredia and La Rioja Alta are built on tertiary flavors, oak and red fruit, the CVNE Imperial adds darker, more explosive fruit and texture. And that is exactly what stands out here - the lush and silky smooth body with its core of ripe blackberry, wild raspberry, black cherry, spice, leather and coffee nuances, are all integrated and folded in on this wine of texture. There is weight here but it is not over extracted and it arrives with complementing acidity, for what is a perfectly balanced wine. While not as forward as say Artadi, it does bring together elements of New and Old World and truly stands out for its purity. This is a huge crowd pleaser of a wine. We recommend this wine served at cellar temperature.”
