“grande cuvée” originates from 70 yrs old vines
"Le Dix uses Los Vascos' best Cabernet Sauvignon block, called El Fraile, that was planted at the end of the 1950s, blending it with 10% Syrah from schist soils. Subtle, nuanced and engaging, it's far from being a blockbuster wine, appealing to the mind as much as the palate. Silky, granular and detailed, with stylish 60% new wood and wonderful focus and length."

Le Dix, meaning ten in French, was introduced in 1996 to celebrate Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)’s first ten years in Chile. Le Dix de Los Vascos is grown in the exceptional vineyard, called El Fraile, which means “the monk”, the oldest planted vineyard at Los Vascos and the original vineyard on the estate. The vineyard is 100% planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and many parcels of the vineyard have vines reaching 80 years in age. The vineyard is fairly large, covering some 200 acres, Le Dix is produced from severely reduced yields from El Fraile (the best) combined with the most rigorous cuvee selection - the resulting wine is of world class stature.
