How to serve
Cvne has been caring for its vineyards for over 125 years. Over 125 years of respect for the winemaking tradition, hard work, research, innovation in production processes, pursuit of the highest quality, experimentation, and recognition. Over 125 years is a very long time. Today, Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España is run by the fifth generation of the family of winemakers who founded the company in 1879.More about the Winery
The 2000 Imperial Gran Reserva is sourced from the oldest bush vines and undergoes 36 months aging in barrel (60% French) before another 60 months aging in bottle. It has a very opulent, luscious bouquet with macerated dark cherries, kirsch, eau-de-vie and candied orange peel. The palate is full-bodied and velvety smooth and sensual in texture. There are layers of dark cherries, blueberry and creme de cassis that lead to a very sweet, tangy finish that risks being cloying in quantity. Fortunately, it avoids that and you can wallow in its unadulterated decadence. Drink now-2030. C.V.N.E. needs absolutely no introduction. It is seen as a bastion of traditional Rioja, and older vintages are revered (even though I myself found some of them rather enervated when tasting in London in 2009). The company owns Contino, which is run independently, as well as Vina Real.View more

Cvne Tinto Gran Reserva 2008
Red ruby colour with reddish brown tinges. Clear notes of toffee. A little bit salty but it was very good.
A wine of Cune (CVNE) will improve any meal.
