Winemaker Notes

The wine is mid garnet in color with pink hints at the rim. It has good aromatic complexity where a perfect balance between ripe fruits and notes from barrel ageing, such as sweet spices, tobacco leaf and roasted coffee can be found. The palate is silky with fine-grained tannins, and a gently acidic finish giving freshness followed by a long, balsamic aftertaste.

CVNE Gran Reserva 2014 is perfect for accompanying any dish based on Mediterranean cuisine.

James Suckling
A chewy and rich gran reserva with rich, ripe fruit and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Medium to full body. Linear and focused. Extremely well done.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
CVNE still buys half of the grapes they vinify, but they now use 100% of their own grapes for the 2014 Cune Gran Reserva. From a challenging year with abundant rains during the harvest, it's approximately 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena), a classical blend with 13.5% alcohol. It fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats with indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic in concrete and élevage in American and French oak barrels for 24 months. The bottles are kept for at least three years before they are sold. It's quite austere and serious, with a shy nose and a backward personality but with the sweet spices and the character of the traditional Gran Reservas. The palate is polished and balanced, with very fine and abundant tannins. It's a powerful Gran Reserva with some youth. It transcends the difficult harvest.

Wine Enthusiast
Gritty olive and rubbery black-fruit aromas give this gran reserva an earthy, reduced opening. That's contrasted by sharp acidity, which brightens plum and savory berry flavors. Plum and chocolate notes come with coffee-like blackness on a finish where lively acidity reappears.
TA 92
Tim Atkin

The coolness of the 2014 vintages was well suited to the CVNE Gran Reserva style, which is made to age in bottle. Partnering Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, all of it from the area to the west of Haro, this is fresh, focused and lightly balsamic with underlying grip.

D 91
Decanter
Attractive coffee and caramel aromas lead to a fruity, plummy palate of raspberry and spice on the finish. Youthful wine with plenty of character, but will soften and develop.

CVNE, Spain
CVNE Winery Video

Cvne, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.

In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.

The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
