Characteristics of Lan D-12

Lan D-12 is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Lan, established in 1972 by a group of entrepreneurs which is today one of the most active wineries in D.O La Rioja.

LAN represents the initials of the provinces that are associated with the D.O La Rioja: Logroño, Álava and Navarra.

Lan D-12 is a monovarietal from the grape Tempranillo, born out of 4 parcels of land located in Haro, in La Rioja Alta. The vineyards are on average 25 years of age, growing at 380-500m above sea level.

After the harvest, the grapes for Lan D-12 are fermented alcoholically in stainless steel vats at a temperature inferior to 25ºC. This claims to preserve the aromatic flavours and to extract the maximum colour from the grapes.

A process called micro-oxygenation is performed and a removal of the lees. Subsequently the must for Lan D-12 receives a malolactic fermentation.

Finally, Lan D-12 is aged for a minimum of 10 months in new American (65%) and French (35%) oak barrels before being refined in the bottle for 12 additional months.

Tasting notes Lan D-12

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
Sight Intense cherry colour with purple tones. Nose Notes of red fruit (strawberry, blackberry) with liquorice, café and chocolate undertones. Taste Wide and fleshly. Pleasant mid-palate with a long and attractive finish.
Sight Intense cherry colour with iridescent violet tones. Nose Fresh red fruit and blackberry aromas appear afterwards notes of liquorice, coffee and chocolate. Taste On the palate it is broad and fleshy. Pleasant passage with a long finish.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.

    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.
