CVNE Vina Real Gran Reserva 1999
Of a ruby red colour, with shades of cherry and deep intensity. Very elegant and deep to the nose, with some outstanding hints of spices, cocoa, vanilla and cedar wood, at the centre of which there is a clear aroma of mature fruit. A powerful and structured wine to the palate, with a well rounded tannin, a high degree of complexity and a long aftertaste. This wine will still evolve very well in bottle for many years.
"Mature and integrated, this wine wraps
American oak scents of dill and vanilla into a
creamy, soft spice. It's smooth and gentle."
Wine & Spirits
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.
