94 points James Suckling: "Very classic character to this with toasted oak, hints of consomme, meat and dried lemon. Medium body with crisp, firm tannins. Drink or hold. (9/18/23)"

93 points Tim Atkin, MW: "(14%) CVNE's vineyards in Torremontalbo supply the grapes for this impressive Gran Reserva, which shows none of the occasional bipolar ripeness of the 2017 vintage. Marrying Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, matured in equal parts French and American oak, this is serious, dense and age-worthy with freshness, grip and crunchy black fruits. 2024-2035. (2023)"

91+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Cune Gran Reserva comes from a very challenging year marked by frost and a dry and warm end of the season, but it shows very good freshness and youth, transcending the adverse conditions of the year. It's a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo with good ripeness and 14% alcohol; it's approachable and affordable with a mix of developed and fruit-driven characteristics. It matured in oak barrels for 24 months, and the oak is neatly folded into the wine. Great effort for the vintage. Drink: 2022-2026. (7/14/22)"
