In commemoration of 10 years of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)’s work in Chile, the first “grande cuvée” LE DIX was created. Le Dix de Los Vascos originates from 70-year-old vines located in the terroir known as “El Fraile”. This is a wine of exceptional complexity, balance and elegance.

Tasting notes

The nose offers rich unabsorbed oak; vanilla and toast. After a few minutes in the glass a core of the richest, ripest, purest fruit appears. Think cool blueberry,  ripe blackcurrant, and black cherry compote. Then there’s a whiff of mint and dark chocolate too. In the mouth its rich and coating with generous ripe fruit and plenty of spice. This vintage needs time to come together, but there is so much potential here.
