Discover More About Our Products

Imperial Gran Reserva 2011 is a mythical red wine from the famous, century-old Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España and is protected by the D.O. Rioja.

It is one of the great red wines of Spain. Its name wonderfully reflects the great nobility and harmony of this vintage. This is a classic Rioja. Like its predecessors, the hints of ripe fruit blend perfectly with the spicy nuances typical of oak ageing. The Peñín Guide has given it a score of 92/100.

A must-try!

4 /5

- Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is an intense ruby red colour.
- The nose is rich and enticing with black and red berry fruit and licorice notes.
- The palate is generously fruity with toasty oak, supple tannins with savoury balsamic nuances and a long finish.
- This wine is produced from grapes harvested in vineyards over 20 years old in the area around Villalba and Haro in Rioja Alta, bush pruned, with low yields, and are picked by hand.
- Only the healthiest and ripest grapes are selected, and following destalking the grapes are cold macerated prior to a cool fermentation.
- Following a long maceration to achieve optimum colour and structure the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation refining it, yet leaving it with the necessary acidity to complete its maturation in French and American oak as well as bottle ageing prior to release.

4 /5

De Cune Imperial Gran Reserva is gemaakt van 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano en 5% Mazuelo en opgevoed op nieuwe Franse en Amerikaanse eiken vaten gedurende 24 maanden. Met zijn intens dieprode kleur geeft hij in de neus aroma's van toast, specerijen, espresso, bramen en pruimen. Medium tot full-bodied in de mond met een fraaie textuur en rijpe smaken. Een absolute Top Rioja waar slechts 22.000 flessen van zijn gemaakt.

4/5

I went with work colleagues to Cune (CVNE) and we taste it there.
It's a red with an opaque tone. Fine aromas of violets. Very light.
A red that pairs well with moussaka.

3/5

Classic red cherry color of a 2009. Aromas of coffee, toffee. Strong flavour which reminds me of strawberry candy.
We paired the Imperial Gran Reserva with a starter.
We drank it at a meeting with friends.
They had it in a wine bar.
A wine for special occasions.

The red and violet edges were visible for me. Raspberry flavour. Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.
We had it with a birthday cake.
I drank it with my ex.
