Despite being historically linked to Spain, Chile's wine history has been most profoundly influenced by French winemaking, particularly that of Bordeaux. This association is exemplified at one of Chile’s best vineyard sites, 'Los Vascos', an Estate in Colchagua, specialising in the production of superb Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as other Bordeaux varietals, under the supervision of one of the Old World's most prestigious Chateaux - Lafite Rothschild. Domaines Barons de Rothschild took over the Los Vascos Estate in 1988. Prior to purchasing, the Rothschild team visited many properties and tasted many wines to ensure that the terroir they purchased was the best possible acquisition.
The vineyard is located 40 km from the Pacific Ocean, some 130m above sea level. The site has excellent exposure to sunlight as well as adequate water resources, semi arid soils and is frost free. When the venture first started, Rothschild's brief to the winemaking team was modest '...make a really good $7 wine'. Only after ten years of experimentation did he feel they were ready to make wines of the highest quality. The Estate's wines continue to be made under the supervision of Lafite's winemaking team. As the vineyards have matured, the quality of Los Vascos wines have improved, in particular the premium wines, 'Grande Reserve' & the ' Le Dix de Los Vascos'.
Lafite Rothschilds Chilean operations – Los Vascos produce outstanding value Cabernet based reds with a profound Bordeaux influence.
The 2010 Grande Reserve is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenère, 10% Syrah and 5% Malbec with ageing taking place in French oak for 12 months of which 20% was new. Opaque black crimson colour with dark crimson red hue. The nose displays lifted aromas of perfectly ripened blackcurrant followed by some mulberry, cedary tobacco like notes and spice. Medium to full bodied the palate is generously flavoured with rich fully ripened blackcurrant and dark mulberry followed by some tobacco cigar box likes characters, cedar and spice. Well structured fine grained tannins. Superb depth with long persistent blackcurrant, mulberry, cedary tobacco and spice aftertaste. Outstanding value.
Cellar 5-6 years.
