Cvne Rioja Gran Reserva "Imperial" 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Herby and a bit of dry compost on the nose over clay and iron flecked rich red berries with a touch of coffee bean laid on top. Lacks the intensity of the 73. In the mouth this is a different story though as it remains rich with sweet, round fruit. The bright acids and polished tannins keep it relatively mouthfilling though it is elegant. With air this suffers, fading progressively through the night but for that first hour or so it's a beauty. 92pts
