2000 Imperial Rioja Gran Reserva 2000 CVNE

£ 79.97

From the very good 2000 vintage and scoring 93/100 Parker points, "The 2000 Imperial Gran Reserva is sourced from the oldest bush vines and undergoes 36 months aging in barrel (60% French) before another 60 months aging in bottle. It has a very opulent, luscious bouquet with macerated dark cherries, kirsch, eau-de-vie and candied orange peel. The palate is full-bodied and velvety smooth and sensual in texture. There are layers of dark cherries, blueberry and creme de cassis that lead to a very sweet, tangy finish that risks being cloying in quantity. Fortunately, it avoids that and you can wallow in its unadulterated decadence." Drink now - 2030.
