A term used on wine labels to denote wine of a specific blend or batch. The word originates from the French word cuve meaning "vat".

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. 2
