Le Dix, meaning 10 in French, was introduced in 1996 to celebrate Domaine Barons de Rothschild's first ten years in Chile. It is only
produced in extraordinary vintage years. Le Dix de Los Vascos is grown in the exceptional vineyard, called El Fraile, which means "the monk",
the oldest planted vineyard at Los Vascos and the original vineyard on the estate. The vineyard is 100% planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and many
parcels of the vineyard have vines reaching 80 years in age. The vineyard is fairly large, covering some 200 acres, Le Dix is produced from
severely reduced yields from El Fraille (the best) combined with the most rigorous cuvee selection - the resulting wine is of world class stature.
Le Dix 2002 is of a deep intense ruby color with an elegant nose full of black cherries within a nice background of black fruits and oak. It is succulent
in the mouth with live crispy tannins and vibrant fruit. It is pleasantly long while also full bodied and fresh. It is ready to drink now but will age
well for some eight to ten years.
Fruity with just enough earth. This well balanced cab will surprise you!
