Los Vascos Le Dix 2016, Colchagua Valley, Chile

£42.95

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 75-year-old vines located in the terroir known as “El Fraile”. This is a wine of exceptional complexity, balance and elegance.

Tasting notes

Youthful yet intellectual. Supple and sweet edged with a wonderfully complex nose ranging from blueberry to liquorice, nutmeg, cloves and dark chocolate. Stunning concentration on the nose and palate. This is inky and dense, with a gorgeously rich mouth feel and layers of ripe black fruit peppered with spice. It is of course young, and its best years are yet to come, but the quality is clearly evident after an hour in the decanter. In fact, we would forgive you for drinking it now with a dish rich in protein.
