Crafted from vines of more than 40 years of age, LAN Gran Reserva spent 24 months in barrel and a further 36 months in bottle to refine and round off the wine. This is LAN's way of paying homage to the passage of time, patience and expertise. Elegant and subtle, it fully expresses the wisdom bequeathed by time.
Garnet color. Aromas of ripe red and black fruits combined with spicy notes from the aging in oak (vanilla, cinnamon, fennel, licorice root), and tertiary aromas (leather, cigar box, coffee…) from its prolonged bottle aging. Full bodied and round, its mouthfeel is elegant and very well balanced.
94 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine The 2012 Bodegas Lan Rioja Gran Reserva is an excellent example of Rioja. This wine excels with aromas and flavors of rich black fruit, enticing savory spices, and well-appointed oaky notes. Try it with a rare slice of prime rib.
93 Points - Wine Spectator This graceful red offers density and freshness, with the smooth texture carrying cherry, dried currant, licorice, tea and citrus peel flavors. The tannins are well-integrated, with bright acidity. Graceful. Tempranillo and Graciano. Drink now through 2032.
