Critic's Notes

John Gilman - View From the Cellar, 93+

“Bakeder is a new wine from Cuné, hailing from two of their vineyards in the village of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa region. It is made entirely from tempranillo and aged for only eleven months in cask, with all of the oak being French in origin. The 2019 comes in at 13.5 percent alcohol and delivers a beautiful young nose of red plums, raspberries, cherries, lovely Rioja spice tones, cigar wrapper, salty soil elements and a lovely framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, young and full-bodied, with a lovely attack, superb depth at the core, a fine foundation of soil tones, ripe, firm tannins and a long, focused and tangy finish. This is a superb young wine that will demand plenty of bottle age before it starts to drink with generosity, but it has all the constituent components in place for future excellence, once it has softened up its substantial tannins.”

Tim Atkin, MW, 93

“Bakeder is a stylish wine from CVNE-owned Viña Real, sourced from two vineyards in Laguardia between 500 and 600 metres. Perfumed, intense and beautifully judged, it's a sculpted, refreshing Tempranillo with enough tannin and structure to age gracefully in bottle. Dark chocolate, Asian spice and dark berry fruit combine appealingly on the palate.”
