Brisandes Cabernet Sauvignon

“Being pioneers in Chile was an exciting challenge, and we have chosen a superb location.” Baron Eric de Rothschild
Domaines Barons de Rothschild acquired Viña Los Vascos in 1988, animated by a pioneering spirit and with the vision to reveal the potential of this exceptional land through patience, passion and an unrelenting quest for excellence.

The vintage
The 2016 season started with normal winter conditions and rains concentrated in July that did not cause any problems in our vineyards. Spring arrived with high temperatures, exceeding 35ºC, and low minimum temperatures, but without any frosts that could have affected the normal growth of the vines. Summer temperatures were high, with peaks of up to 37.9ºC in January, but gradually dropped below 30ºC in March. The only potential problem was the rain that fell during the harvest; however, careful organization and our team’s quick reactions resulted in excellent quality grapes with a refined, elegant character.
The wine
Brisandes is the cuvée selected by the team of Viña Los Vascos for the freshness of their fruit and their suppleness. The vintages all share a mature and fruity quality, fresh aromas, and a supple and fleshy structure.
