"LZ is a tribute to the village grape growers of the 1920s. We love to imagine how they made the wine back then, fermenting it in big cement tanks, pressing it and racking for storing the wine in the same tanks during the following nine months until the next harvest. During this time we mature the wine and go selling after the sixth month. With LZ, we wanted to keep alive that memory of taste. Using only our certified bio grapes from Lanciego, working with the rhythms of that bygone era. The result is a fresh and straightforward wine, and authentic whimsical wine that offers its best expression during the second half of the following year after the harvest."
2017 is a very successful year. A lovely juicy, crunchy, wine with good depth, it's got good complexity. A blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha.

"There is an extra degree of elegance, precision and focus in the 2012 Altos de Lanzaga compared with the regular Lanzaga from that same year. It is produced from four small plots of over 70-year-old vines at 500-600 meters altitude, planted on very poor soils that are biodynamically farmed. It fermented in 3,000-kilo oak vats for 20 days with indigenous yeasts, and matured in 1,500-liter oak foudres and 225-liter barriques for some 18 months. The nose might be a little reticent at first, quite subtle, serious, balanced, a little backward. There is great balance, very fine tannins and very good freshness. This wine is very tasty, combining elegance and power. This is a very good vintage of Altos, with enough stuffing and balance to age magnificently in bottle. 2,500 bottles were filled in June 2014." 05 pts Luis Gutierrez Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Corriente is a Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano blend, from purchased and estate grapes from the village of Lanciego, fermented with indigenous yeasts in a mixture of concrete and stainless steel vats. The wine matured in barriques and oak foudres of different ages. It was bottled in April 2017. This is a creamy and spicy entry-level Rioja, combining fruit, spicy oak and some dusty tannins."

"Combining Tempranillo grapes grown on both red and white soils in Lanciego, this sees no new oak. It's a taut, high-altitude style that's fresh, scented and very mineral, even in a hot vintage like 2011." 95 pts Tim Atkin MW Rioja's Top Ten Producers Decanter Feb 2018
"The 2011 Lanzaga is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano from different zones of the village of Lanciego fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of 1,500- and 2,500-liter foudres and 225-liter barriques. It is a pure and elegant wine which does not transmit any notes that would give a hint of the heat of the vintage, very elegant. The palate is silky and balanced, with very fine tannins and enough acidity. They used more grapes from the higher-altitude vineyards and produced a little less quantity to obtain this impressive wine. A very good showing, especially for the vintage."
