The Culmen is the top selection by Bodegas Lan , the best grapes of the oldest vines of the Pago El Rincon plot in the single vineyard Viña Lancianoare used for the Culmen. It undoubtedly belongs to the very best red wines of the Rioja and thus all of Spain. The penible manual selection at two sorting tables makes it possible to use only perfectly ripened berries that are aged 24 months in new 225L barriques from the Tronçais and Allier forests. After another 20 months of bottle storage, this specialty is delivered to customers all over the world.

The Culmen is a great Rioja with a noble bouquet reminiscent of ripe red and dark berries, accompanied by balsamic notes, liquorice, cinnamon, vanilla and some nutmeg. The taste shows balance at the highest level, the wine is intense, powerful and at the same time immensely fine, noble tannins complete everything. A wine experience!
