Bodegas LAN

LAN Crianza

Our most famous wine, the one that best reflects our innovations in ageing, as we started to use hybrid oak barrels (with French oak bases and American oak staves) for LAN Crianza as long as two decades ago, contributing to its unmistakeable character.

93% Tempranillo, 2% Mazuelo, 5% Garnacha.

Selected from 10 to 20 year-old vines from our long-standing suppliers in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa subzones. Sloped plots of calcareous-clay soils with good drainage and sun exposure.

Traditional winemaking, destalking – crushing.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. 15 days’ maceration, with continuous pumping-over to optimise colour extraction.

Aged for 14 months in combined American and French oak barrels followed by 9 months of rounding in the bottle prior to release.

TASTING NOTES: Intense red cherry colour. Aromas of red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) and peach. Notes of pastry framed by fine nuances of vanilla and toffee and a slightly touch of cinnamon. Balanced on the palate, it has a long lasting and satisfying finish.

Bodegas LAN

Since 1972, our story has been closely linked to the land.
A name – LAN – composed of the initials of the three provinces that make up the D.O.Ca. Rioja: Logroño (now La Rioja), Álava and Navarra. 

The Soul of LAN

Viña Lanciano has been – and continues to be – the essence and the origin of Bodegas LAN and the umbilical cord that links our wines to the land. A vineyard in a meander of the River Ebro, which represents our pioneering commitment and respect for the raw materials, with the active practice of sustainable viticulture. Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha vines grow across each of the 22 parcels, with vines aged between 40 and 60 years of age.
