Winemaker Notes

Le Dix 2015 has a beautiful ruby red color. Gorgeous aromas of raspberry and ripe cherry intermingle with notes of black pepper, cocoa, walnut skin, graphite, tobacco, and cedar. On the palate, this magnificently balanced wine presents a harmonious structure, with refined tannins. A truly elegant offering.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TA 93
Tim Atkin

Le Dix is made to last and generally does so with distinction. This assemblage of Cabernet

Sauvignon with 15% Syrah and Carmenère is serious enough, with the structure to age, firm,

savoury tannins, lots of new oak and scented, refined fruit. 2022-30. Alcohol:14.5%

JS 93
James Suckling
Lots of blackcurrants and ripe berries with hints of roses follow through to a full body, firm and velvety tannins and a long and juicy finish. A rich and impressive red. Needs one to three years to open more. Try in 2020.
WS 92
Wine Spectator

A vibrant red, offering intense red cherry and red currant flavors that are well-structured, with notes of dried tarragon. Accents of Christmas pudding on the creamy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The classical Cabernet blend of the 2015 Le Dix de Los Vascos includes 10% Carmenere and 5% Syrah. It has the Bordeaux elegance with Chilean exuberance, everything in a subtle and harmonious way. It has all the blackberries, cedar wood and pencil lead with some floral touches and a special brightness. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals fine-grained tannins and integrated, focused flavors. 

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Complex aromas of mocha, oak grain and chocolate boost scents of berry fruits and cassis. The jammy palate offers several layers of blackberry, chocolate and spice flavors. A steady finish with no peaks or valleys keeps this tasty number on path. Drink through 2025.

Cellar Selection

Aromatic with hints of dried red fruit, plum and smoky roast pepper, while the savory palate has a bright menthol freshness.

Los Vascos, South America
Los Vascos Winery Video

Los Vascos wines blend Lafite tradition with the unique terroir of Chile to create elegant wines that bring exceptional to the everyday. The vision of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) to expand their estates took them to South America in 1988, becoming the first French viticultural investment in modern Chile. Since then, a comprehensive modernization and investment program has been undertaken, oriented towards the production of fine wine using and adapting the viticultural experiences of Bordeaux and other areas where Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is present. 

Los Vascos is located in Valley de Caneten (Colchagua), a closed valley in the central zone of Chile, approximately 25 miles from the sea. The valley provides a perfect microclimate for high quality viticulture, with Northern exposure to lands uncontaminated by airborne or water-borne pollutants. Daily on-shore winds provide temperature changes between 68-77°F, for optimum maturation of the grapes. With 1581 acres, it is one of the largest vineyards in the central Colchagua valley, at the foot of Mount Cañeten.

Between 1989 and 1995 Winemaker Marcelo Gallardo studied at Universidad Austral de Chile graduating with a degree in Agronomy engineering. Marcelo continued his education studying and graduating from Universidad de Chile between 1998 and 1999 with a degree in Enology and Viticulture in Santiago. In 1999, Marcelo worked as an assistant winemaker at Viña Santa Rita in the Maipo Valley, and interned at Bodega Sandeman, Oporto-Duero in Portugal. After Portugal he performed a harvest at Domain Jandeau in Burgundy, France. Working for Viña Los Vascos since 2000, he became the Chief Winemaker and Production Manager in 2006. Marcelo routinely visits the other Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) properties to bring L’Esprit Lafite to Viña Los Vascos. In addition, he collaborates on the latest developments in technology from top Universities and vineyards.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
