The Dallas Morning News & TexSom Wine Competiton,
To celebrate 10 years of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) creating world class reds in Chile, the first “grande cuvée” was created. Le Dix (the ten) is now one of the most important wines in the country. Enjoy rich complexity and elegance.
The Domaine Barons de Rothschild (best known for the £1,000+ reds of Château Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac) decided to invest in the Los Vascos winery in Chile in 1988. After 30 years, Los Vascos is considered one of the most important wineries in Chile and its top red, Le Dix, is one of the most highly regarded labels in the country. It's a classic Chilean Cabernet, full of fruit for immediate appeal but with a strong ageing potential. The 2015 in particular offers exceptional complexity, balance and elegance, described by Wine Advocate as having "Bordeaux elegance with Chilean exuberance". Expect ripe raspberry and cherry accentuated by spicy notes of cocoa, tobacco, cedar and a touch of eucalyptus. A rich and truly impressive red.
"It has the Bordeaux elegance with Chilean exuberance, everything in a subtle and harmonious way"
