A timeless icon. Le Dix illustrates the power and finesse of the Los Vascos terroirs that are encapsulated into a timeless icon. This blend is made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon selected amongst the older vines of the vineyard on a plot called El Fraile—The Monk.
Nestled at the heart of the vineyard, the vines are planted at high density and produce grapes of remarkable concentration. Selected Syrah and Carménère are blended in to add complexity to the wine. For the past decades, hence its name, Le Dix has been the patient witness of our time in Chile. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels made by the Tonnellerie des Domaines, the DBR Lafite cooperage, this long-lived wine will reveal its potential over time.
Tasting Notes: Ruby red color with beautiful brick-like nuances. Ripe plum and cherry-scented nose that also features notes of licorice, saffron, cinnamon, and nutmeg that enhance the complexity of aromas. Notes of graphite, clove, dark chocolate and cedar take the experience to a whole new level. Le Dix 2016 is a smooth and supple wine with sweet and friendly tannins. A joyful intellectual.
