Le Dix Cosechas Antiguas

Viña Los Vascos
In the land of Los Vascos, cultivation is at our heart; cultivating not only vineyards but our dream to transform our vast land into a fruitful eco-system producing the most elegant Chilean wines. We are free spirited but remember our heritage. Our holistic approach encompasses and protects all - from our short-legged sheep clearing weeds without devouring precious grapes to our artisans honing hand-made knives to carefully tend the vines. We embody the Chilean paradox, meticulous in our work, easy going and warm in our personality. We are independent yet proud to cultivate our community because we are stronger and happier together.

The vintage
Le Dix is a wine of remarkable ageing potential. After resting in French oak barrels for eighteen months, it will reveal its complexity with further bottle ageing. The Cosechas Antiguas wines benefit from many years of ageing in our cellars in the heart of the Colchagua Valley and are released when our winemakers deemed they have turned into the perfect expression of their vintage.
The growing season was characterized by low rainfall and spring temperatures that were cooler than usual. The grapes for Dix were harvested a little over a month after the terrible earthquake in the region. Taking place two weeks later than the previous year, the harvests were carried out entirely by hand in good conditions. Yields are slightly below average due to smaller bunches. However, the concentration of the berries was excellent, and the grapes offered a remarkable expression of fruit.
Cabernet sauvignon : 85%
Carménère : 10%
Syrah : 5%

Tasting notes
Fine deep red colour.
The nose presents aromas of red and black fruit with a degree of maturity that ensures a pleasant freshness. Aged in French oak barrels from the Tonnellerie des Domaines, the wine has superb toasted, coffee and cinnamon notes. Notes of liquorice, dark chocolate, peppermint, and white and black pepper complete the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is intense, with plenty of volume and good structure. Fine, elegant tannins. Pleasant, round finish.
