  • Cuvée (or Cuvee on some English language labels) is a French term used on wine labels to denote wine of a specific blend or batch. The word originates from the French word cuve meaning "vat". A cuvée wine may be numbered, indicating that the winemaker assigned a unique number to that blend. The word cuvée may also be used in terms such as "vin de cuvée", "cuvée speciale", or "tête de cuvée" to indicate a first-press wine or a wine that the winemaker believes to be among their finest.
