Characteristics of Culmen Reserva

Culmen Reserva is a red wine from the Rioja developed by LAN. The winery is located in the town of Fuenmayor (La Rioja Alta).

Culmen Reserva is a classic of both the LAN cellar and La Rioja. Culmen Reserva is made from the Tempranillo (85%) and Graciano (15%) varieties. The grapes come from a rigorous selection of vines over 40 years old in Rincon (Viña Lanciano). The vineyards have a yield of 3.800kg per hectare.

For processing, the must is fermented in conical tanks with the intention of facilitating the extraction of colour. The wine is macerated with the skins for three weeks.

After winemaking, Culmen Reserva is aged for 22 months in new barrels of French fine grain oak from the Troncaise and Allier forests. Once bottled, the wine rests for two years. Culmen Reserva is a limited production wine.

Tasting notes Culmen Reserva

An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Cherry red with ruby reflections, clean and bright. Nose Great aromatic intensity, a presence of ripe red fruit with toast, floral and balsamic notes. Taste Fleshy enveloping entry. Step is tasty and creamy with hints of red fruit. Good acidity and polished tannins. Long finish.
Sight Intense and very bright, dark cherry colour with red tile colour edges. Thin tears. Nose Its notes of ripe black fruit (especially plums) are released along with spicy and creamy notes. Its good toasted and roasted aromas are nuanced with a subtle balsamic hint. It has a good mineral background. It still shows an elegant intensity. Taste Wine with a good and wide attack and a good and light, very silky and smooth mid palate with balanced aromas and tasty flavours. It shows a good acidity, ripe tannins and a long finish with a pleasant persistence. Despite the time, it still retains its great elegance and its great finesse, thank to which it has become a classic.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    When you visit Bodegas Lan for the first time and enter the 6,400 m2 ageing warehouse, which is completely diaphanous, it may seem to you that they have literally followed what one of the Marx Brothers shouts out in the film "GO West": "Timber! Timber!". However, the truth is quite the opposite. Behind one of the largest ageing warehouses in our country, which can hold more than 50,000 barrels, we can find a plethora of methods and techniques to achieve the modern Riojas of the 21st century. A grand project that began in 1972 and that catapulted Bodegas Lan as one of the most modern and innovative wineries in Europe and, most likely, in the world.
