Los Vascos Carmenère Grande Reserve 2017 six bottle case
It took nearly three years to develop Los Vascos Carmenère Grande Reserve. Special attention was devoted to the Carmenère variety, which has almost disappeared from its native France but is now a flagship grape in Chile. Aged for a year in French oak, the 2017 vintage is the best yet and this stunning wine brings bags of fruit and spice to the party.

Some examples of Carmenere can be overtly smoky and spicy, and the fruit sits somewhere in the background. Although this is a perfect example of what this grape variety can achieve and brings together lashings of ripe black fruit peppered with complex spices. On the nose there’s an initial notes of blueberry coulis, leading to black cherry, pepper, black olive, smoked paprika and bay leaf. The palate is seamless and rich with a beautifully elegant structure and supple tannin. There’s masses of black fruit and chocolate and truffles towards the finish.
Take a bow the team at Los Vascos, this is brilliant stuff!

Los Vascos Le Dix 2015, Colchagua Valley, Chile£42.95 More info & buy The nose offers rich oak derived spice; vanilla and toast. After a few minutes in the glass a core of ripe and pure fruit takes shape. Think cool blueberry, ripe blackcurrant, and black cherry compote. Then there's a whiff of mint and liquorice. In the mouth its rich and coating with generous ripe fruit and plenty of spice - In fact the 2015 vintage of Los Vascos Le Dix feels altogether spicier and more complex than past vintages with peripheral aromas of saffron, nutmeg and cumin. This vintages shows well after an hour in the decanter - although further cellaring will benefit the wine.
