Le Dix has a deep and bright red robe. The nose displays ripe and intense red and black fruit aromas with a good level or ripeness that
ensures lasting freshness. Ageing in barrels made at DBR/ Lafite's cooperage grants the wine nice toasty, coffee, and cinnamon notes that perfectly combine with blackcurrant, blueberry, cherry, and blackberry, and blend with licorice, dark chocolate, peppermint, and black and white pepper. Intense mouthfeel, good volume and body. Delicate and elegant tannins. Round, consistent, and pleasant finish.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenère, 5% Syrah
"For price and quality, Le Dix 2010 takes things to a high level. The nose on this Cabernet-led blend is full of violet, lilac, cassis and mild oak. The palate is multilayered and has a complex feel to it, while flavors of baked berry, cassis, coffee and marzipan finish with size and length. This is one of the most balanced and complete versions of Le Dix to date. Drink from 2014–2022."
"The aromas of this are complex with currants and blackberries with rose petal and hints of sweet tobacco. This is extremely balanced and harmonious with pretty fruit and hints of sandalwood and 85% cabernet sauvignon, 10% carmenere, and 5% syrah. 18 months in barrel, mostly new oak. "
"Inky ruby. Pungent smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry compote, redcurrant and cured tobacco, with suave vanilla and clove nuances gaining strength with air. Juicy and precise, offering intense red berry and bitter cherry flavors that take on sweetness with air. Dusty tannins come on late and add shape to the very long, sweet, incisive finish. This wine has the balance to age."
