Le Dix de Los Vascos 2013

Valle del Colchagua, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileLe Dix celebrated 10 years of Lafite in Chile back in 1996 but we only see the wine in exceptional vintages. The 2013 growing season was dry year, laid over successive warm days and cool nights, yielding a blend of 85/10/5 cabernet sauvignon, carmenère and syrah. The wine originates from 80-year-old vines located at ‘El Fraile,’ or the monk vineyard, in Colchagua. The nose is underscored by ripe, fragrant, cherry aromas laced with blackberry and leafy licorice notes. The palate is intense but finely structured mixing black olives, black fruit, white pepper, tobacco and cedar but all with refinement. As elegant as it gets for Chile and a wine that should age well through 2023.Tasted: 05 August 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 63.99 BCLS Producer: Domaines Barons de Rothschild Distributors: Select Wines & Spirits
