97/100 Robert Parker: "We're talking about 1962, when CVNE produced the amazing 1962 Viña Real Reserva Especial, labeled that way because they considered it truly exceptional, a wine that has consistently showed great every time I have encountered it. This occasion was no different, as it ranked among the favorite vintages for most of us tasting that evening. It's really splendorous, polished, elegant, intense, subtle and chameleonic, full of spices, autumn forest aromas, smoke, meat, and fruit, again with echoes of a strong percentage of Garnacha in the blend. Tonight the 1962 was above 1964, 1966 and 1968. A truly spectacular bottle".
18,5/20 Elmundovino: "Truffles and wild mushrooms in the nose, excellent young fruit, roundness and vigor. A great wine".
98/100 Gerry Dawes: "The bottle I chose for my birthday dinner at Ibiza Tapas Danbury by Ignacio Blanco. I had been saving for at least thirty years this bottle of CVNE Viña Real Gran Reserva 1962, which turned out to be in incredible shape. It was almost young, vibrant and kept gaining, instead of fading, with air".
98/100 Cellartracker: "This Viña Real has it all. Very elegant It is smoky, cloudy, autumnal, with a wide range of tertiary: mushrooms, fungi, underbrush, charcoal pit, beech woods, truffle périgord ... Tremendous !! His height and tension is challenging. It is gaining even if it fits in notes of mineral cut, graphite, silex, rock of losenal. Bottle served at intervals of 45-60 minutes to see how it is evolving. It's a real show".
98/100 Cellartracker: "Middle neck fill bought at a charity auction. Uncorked an hour prior to a quick decant before serving. Dusky, alluring and ethereal soft-focused damask-red semi-translucent colour with just slight transparency at the rim. Nose is BAM!......gorgeous sweet strawberries....so pure....with a great subtle yet firm background of barnyard....developing a very high-toned and mesmerising elegance with extended time in the glass. Gosh, this nose is one of the most beautiful I have ever experienced and just plunges you into private reveries. The palate is pitch-perfect poised and mouth-watering acidity combining with mushrooms, fungus, wild woodland strawberries, light and lifted....diaphanous....with increasingly persistent and deepening plum baritone notes. Incredibly sophisticated....so subtle yet powerfully moving and constantly micro-unfolding different facets of its personality. Totally beguiling and transcendental.....wow, what an experience".
