Los Vascos Le Dix (750ml)
Los Vascos is Domaine Baron Rothschild of Chateau Lafite’s venture in Colchagua, Chile. Le Dix de Los Vascos was created to commemorate their first ten years of producing wine in this region.
Le Dix is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon ( about 85%) blended with Syrah and Carmenère. The grapes are sourced from over 70-year-old vines located in the terroir known as “El Fraile”. The wine ages for 18 months in new oak barrels. The result is an exceptionally complex wine with pronounced aromas of ripe red and dark berries accentuated by spice, cedar and eucalyptus notes. The palate is bold with with grippy tannins and a great balance of power and elegance.
The 2013 Le Dix de Los Vascos is the top of the range here. It’s a classical Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of blackberries, cedar wood and spices. The palate is soft with moderate acidity. -Luis Gutiérrez
