2007 Bodegas Lan "Viña Lanciano" Reserva Rioja

SKU #1212306 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Vina Lanciano Reserva is sourced from, and carries the name of, the winery’s signature vineyard, the 72-hectare Lanciano estate along the River Ebro, northeast of Fuenmayor. There is no doubt this is a good vineyard, which seems to have behaved quite well in such a cold and difficult vintage. The wine has some notes of exotic wood, blueberries, star anise and incense, and a supple and tasty palate with an attractive herbaceous note that gives it freshness. (LG)  (12/2013)

This single vineyard wine, produced by Bodegas Lan in the Rioja Alavesa village of Lanciego, is a phenomenal value. Composed of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Mazuelo, it shows the rich, spicy red fruit characteristics of Rioja as you start heading southeast from Rioja Alta towards the city of Logroño. Also, given the cool, Atlantic climate influenced 2007 vintage, this wine shows loads of freshness and poise. It's great to drink now and should continue to age beautifully for a while.

Additional Information:



- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.


- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
