Product Description

“This is very ripe with dried fruits and dried flowers. Exuberant aromas. Full body, round and silky, chewy tannins. Bright and exciting. Wonderful fruit. Shows tension and beauty. Needs time to soften and little. So gorgeous. Decant two hours in advance.” James Suckling 94 Points

“Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of red fruit liqueur, vanilla, mocha and licorice, with a suggestion of pipe tobacco emerging slowly. Sweet, sappy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering suave cherry-vanilla, coconut and floral pastille flavors that are sharpened by a spicy element. Closes long and smooth, with an emphatic echo of intense red fruit and velvety tannins adding grip.” Vinous 93 Points

“Tea, underbrush and tobacco notes give this red a traditional, savory character, while fresh cherry and leafy flavors keep this lively. Balanced and graceful, with polished tannins and a floral finish.” Wine Spectator 92 Points

“The top of the Cune range before getting to Imperial is a new wine, born by chance, mostly for the export markets with the aim of offering a classical Gran Reserva at affordable prices. I'm talking about the 2009 Cune Gran Reserva, a red from a warm and dry vintage, saved by some rain in mid-September. A blend of 85% Tempranillo 10%, Graciano and 5% and Mazuelo from vineyards in the Rioja Alta subzone, it shows roasted aromas mixed with notes of black fruit and a touch of leather. It is also already showing some incipient complexity and tertiary notes, so it offers more than just fruit and oak. It undergoes a post-fermentation maceration to extract color and structure before maturing in oak barrels for two years. Nevertheless, the wine is gentle in the palate with the CVNE softness and approachability. A Gran Reserva for a wide audience at very good price for the category. Approachable and able to age.” Wine Advocate 91+ Points

“This opens with leathery aromas of earthy plum and red-berry fruits. It's medium in body and intensity, with racy, tomatoey acidity. Baked flavors are a bit stalky and echo the nose, while this gran reserva finishes ripe and easy.” Wine Enthusiast 91 Points
