Characteristics of Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva

Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva is a red wine from Rioja produced by El Coto de Rioja, a winery that was founded in 1970 by a group of individuals with standing and experience in the wine world.

The winery is located in Oyón (Álava). The climate in this area is moderate continental with a large Mediterranean and the Bay of Biscay influence, although the Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural barrier and protects the vines from cold winds from the north. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo from own vineyards planted on different types of soil: clay-limestone, clay-ferrous and alluvial. As for processing, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 21 or 30 days and then performed a maceration to obtain a balanced wine and fruit extract. Finally, Coto de Imaz Grand Reserve remains a minimum of 24 months in American and French oak barrels and 36 months in bottle.

Tasting notes Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva

This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
