Characteristics of Lan Reserva
Lan Reserva is a red wine from Rioja produced by Bodega LAN.
The name of the winery is composed of the initials of the provinces that were part of Rioja (Logroño, Alava and Navarra) in 1972, when the winery was created.
LAN Winery is located in Fuenmayor (La Rioja Alta).
Lan Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo (80%), Mazuelo (10%) and Grenache (10%). The grapes come from vineyards of 60 years of the Viña Lanciano farm. This farm, surrounded by the Ebro River, is one of the most spectacular in La Rioja.
For processing, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30-32C. The maceration lasts 3 weeks, during which frequent pumpings are made to achieve a good colour extraction.
Finally, Lan Reserva undergoes aging in French and American oak for at least 12 months and then 24 months in bottle.

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.
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.

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.
