LE DIX 2016
It was in 1988 that Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild acquired Viña Los Vascos.
Driven by a pioneering spirit, their vision was to unlock the full potential of this exceptional land.
Today we cultivate a common dream and project: to transform our vast lands into a rich ecosystem, producing the most elegant Chilean wines.
Denomination: Colchagua Chile
The vineyard extends from the coastal mountain range to the Andes Mountains.
The Mediterranean climate and the exceptional terroirs of this area make Colchagua a unique region for the quality of its wines.
The Los Vascos farm is located at the foot of the coastal mountain range, 200 km southwest of Santiago, in the coldest area of Colchagua where the vineyards benefit from the natural freshness coming from the Pacific Ocean.
Le Dix comes mainly from a batch of old Cabernet Sauvignon vines called El Fraile, which means the Monk.
Nestled in the heart of the vineyard, the vines are planted with high density and produce grapes of great quality and remarkable concentration.
The lot is completed by a selection of Syrah and Carménère that bring great complexity to the wine.
Serve at 16-18°C
Region: Valle de Colchagua
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Carménère 5%, Syrah 5%, Cabernet franc 5%
