Year… 1972. Bodegas LAN is founded and named after the initials of the 3 provinces in the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logroño (now La Rioja), Álava and Navarra. It is located in the heart of Rioja Alta, which is synonymous with tradition and prestige.
Extremely average. especially for the 2001 vintage
Nose of cherry, frutas de bosque with hint of leather and chocolate, nice long finish; very nicely balanced wine. As LAN is one of the most traditional producers in Rioja I expected a little bit more Rioja character, especially of the 2001. But definitvely a nice, well rounded wine.
