Exhibition Gran Reserva 2001 Cvne


#1

Exhibition Gran Reserva 2001 CVNE,
This aged gem is just hitting the website. Does anyone know it’s origin. Is this Imperial? That’s my basic question. Cvne s GR sells for much less and is released much earlier, where’s as Imperial is much more money. Imperial is made in a separate area from the basic label wine, if I understand correctly.
Anyone have any pointers?

Can’t help on the pedigree Russ, but it did win IWC Trophy on previous release

and still seems to have a long life predicted
also available in a mature Riojas case

which seems good value based on prices elsewhere

hmmm
So I’ll be putting a case of one or other in reserves but which ?


#3

I thought about the mixed case as well. Not sure I want them all, and some aren’t available singularity, so I’m torn.
They are
1 Bottle(s) of Vina Real Gran Reserva Rioja 2009
1 Bottle(s) of Urbina Gran Reserva, Rioja 2004
2 Bottle(s) of The Society’s Exhibition Rioja Gran Reserva 2001
1 Bottle(s) of CVNE Imperial Reserva 2005
1 Bottle(s) of Contino Reserva Rioja 2008

Unconvinced by urbina as yet, but others bottles good and as I say not available from TWS otherwise.

Went for the Exhibition.
2001 GR at that quality and price. And great members reviews from initial offer.


#5

Also grabbed a couple of bottles of the Exhibition GR 2001.
Afraid I can’t help with the initial query re origin however…


#6

Supposed to be saving money (an expensive renovation project…), but this is too good to ignore. There can’t be too many opportunities to get hold of 2001 GR Rioja from a fine producer, so 6 of these going into reserves.
