Age at the same time as beauty….

Cune Reserva 2009


As Helen Mirren becomes the new face of L’Oréal aged 69 hot on the heals of 80 year old Joan Didion’s stint as the face of the Spring/Summer collection at Céline it is clear that age and beauty are finally starting to weigh in with the same equity. As in wine the general belief that history and years of experience will reap better [read more expensive] wines often rings true which is why it’s equally refreshing to come across a winery with 135 years of heritage, like Cune from Rioja, whose wines are not only on the high street, but affordable and drinkable too.

Their Rioja Reserva 2009, all smoky nose, cherry lips and voluptuous body tastes younger than it’s years and is available for much less than most anti wrinkle creams: £14.99 from Waitrose, Majestic, Wine Rack and Richard Dawes Fine Wine.
