Winemaker Notes

Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 94
Decanter
Sourced entirely from CVNE’s vineyards in Villalba, this cuvée of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo is always great value, over- delivering on complexity and ageing potential. Refreshing and vigorous with silky tannins, subtle oak and textured blueberry fruit.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
The 2009 vintage turned this wine’s typically austere Rioja Alta style toward sumptuous richness. It has the fatness of a black mushroom and dark fruit ripeness, while the texture is sleek, with clean, modern lines.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Smoky, tight, gritty aromas of licorice, tobacco, cassis and berry are lively and ripped. This is layered and acidic, but also classy. Flavors of herbal red-berry fruits, coffee, herbs and licorice finish long and seamless.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Imperial Reserva from a warm, ripe and powerful vintage, is still a project of a Reserva with its backward personality and its shy nose, displaying the toasty aromas of the barrique. It needs time to polish those tannins. Those who prefer more powerful wines would prefer this to the 2008. Drink 2015-2020.

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.

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.
