World-class Riojas – Bodega Lanzaga, Las Beatas 2016
Red wine

Bodega Lanzaga, Las Beatas 2016

RRP £175

Made with nine co-planted varieties, with Tempranillo accounting for 60% of the cuvée, this is a thrilling wine. If the 2015 was like a Musigny, this is more of a Clos de Bèze, showing masses of wild-herb perfume, dark plum and blackberry fruit, stylish, scented oak and a long, poised, balanced finish.
