Wines included

CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva, Rioja 2010

A magnificent Rioja and one of the great wines from this famous Spanish region. The fine tobacco aroma and spicy oak supports the intense sweet fruit character of tempranillo, graciano and mazuelo. Aged for two years in barrel. Decant to drink now, or be patient!

Spain £42.00 per bottle

Lopez de Haro Classica Gran Reserva, Rioja 2001

A special wine to match special times, this fully mature 2001 is a delicious ambassador for one of the best Rioja vintages in recent decades. Perfumed, smoky and mellow.

Spain £28.00 per bottle

López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva, Rioja 2009

The classic Tondonia blend is 75% tempranillo with 15% garnacha and 10% graciano and mazuelo. The reserva spends six years in barrel (just one would satisfy the region’s regulations) and several more than the required two in bottle before release. The subtle, authentic, mellow and mahogany-coloured result is generous and appealing with smoky leathery flavours and a delicate texture.

Spain £32.00 per bottle

Muga Selección Especial Reserva, Rioja 2016

As the name suggests, Selección Especial is a step up from Muga’s standard reserva, and is selected from the family’s superior vineyards. Aged in French oak for three years, the 2016 is full-bodied and velvety with great depth of spicy, black fruit.

Spain £23.00 per bottle

Contino Reserva, Rioja 2017

One of the most stylish Rioja reservas from a single vineyard in the Alavesa. Pure and refined with spicy black fruit flavour and velvety structure. Decant a couple of hours before serving.

Spain £20.00 per bottle

La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Gran Reserva, Rioja 2014

Arana has been upgraded to gran reserva with full justification given the superior fruit quality which brings freshness and intensity to the wine. The 2014 is a masterpiece combining elegance with complexity, where four years gentle ageing in barrel has enhanced the ripe red fruit of tempranillo.

Spain £34.00 per bottle
