“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. Today we cultivate a common dream and project : to turn our vast land into a rich ecosystem producing the most elegant Chilean wines.

The vintage
Cromas Gran Reserva is an evolution of the Grande Réserve. With the name Los Vascos Cromas we were inspired by the colours of nature to reflect how this wine express the message of the soil it is coming from and the know-how of the Los Vascos team.
For this new event, 2018 offered optimal weather conditions. The season started with average rainfall in winter and spring, which provided favorable conditions for bud break and fruit onset. Minimum temperatures were mild throughout the season, and luckily we didn’t suffer any frost episode. The main characteristic of the summer was that temperatures remained slightly below average, which allowed grapes to ripen slowly. This factor, combined with a great after season with no precipitations, was determining for the harvest timing that started rather late once the grapes had developed fully and reached optimal phenolic ripeness.

Tasting notes
Intense ruby-red colour with glints of garnet.
Initially the nose presents scents of fresh strawberry, red cherry, gooseberry and blue flowers. Then subtle notes of bay, tobacco, caramel and graphite emerge. On the palate, the wine is generous with soft yet lively tannins, leading into a long, lingering finish.
