    Compania Vinicola del Norte, CVNE, aka Cune (cooh-nay) are one of the originals of truly classic Rioja. Established in the train station in Haro in the 1870s, they were perfectly positioned to take advantage of the phylloxera crash in Bordeaux and ship to France. Since then, they have developed into one of the finest producers of so-called classical (Bordelaise style, 225L cask aged) Rioja. 'Imperial' is a special wine indeed though. it's a rare single vineyard wine from the highest of all vineyards in Villalba, and has its own dedicated mini-bodega within the Cune property.

  • Tasting notes
    Blackcurrant, cassis and wild cherry fruits meet violet, peony, leather and old ink. Chinchona bark melds with soft silty tannin and resolve as a poem of ease and space. Imagine taking two sheets of fine parchment with dried inkblots on them, and between them pressing and drying peonies … now, slowly rehydrate them with your mind, follow the ethereal dance, the subtle wafting of ink, earth, paper and flower … sweetness becomes spice, oak becomes space … utterly fabulous.
