Le Dix de Los Vascos is the exquisite Grand Vin produced by Château Lafite Rothschild’s operation in Chile. Considering that a bottle of their top Bordeaux from the same vintage will set you back considerably more than this wooden case of six bottles, this “grande cuvée” is a phenomenal value red. Made with the same care and attention as a First Growth, the silky Le Dix de Los Vascos was first released to celebrate ten years of the Rothschild family working in Chile. Crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah, which were handpicked from 70-year-old vines grown on a unique terroir known as “El Fraile”, it’s a wine that has everything. Complexity, elegance, volume and depth; you could explore the black pepper, cassis, toasted walnut, raspberry jam, blackberry, pencil lead, rose petal, tobacco and cedar nuances for hours. Simply a must-try.

Viña Los Vascos is the pioneering outpost of Château Lafite Rothschild in Chile – probably one the most ideally suited countries for making wine on the planet. Los Vascos means “The Basques”, named after the Spanish who first planted vines in the Peralillo area of Colchagua. But don’t be fooled, this is now a very French operation, backed up by the wealth of experience, expertise and investment that Bordeaux’s First Growth masters bring to the table.

The French side of the Rothschild dynasty is legendary in the wine world. In 1853 Nathaniel de Rothschild created Château Mouton Rothschild, and fifteen years later his uncle James Mayer de Rothschild acquired Château Lafite Rothschild. The former is the most flamboyant of Bordeaux’s First Growths and part of the Primum Familiae Vini – an association of the world’s finest family-owned wineries that include the likes of Antinori, Vega Sicilia, Tenuta San Guido of Sassicaia fame, Egon Müller, Pol Roger, the Symington Family Port house and many more. Neighbouring Château Lafite Rothschild has also become one of the most famous and sought-after wines in the entire world. Esteemed wine critic Neal Martin describes it as the “quintessential wine of elegance”, and it’s widely regarded as the most consistent of the First Growths. In 1962 the Lafite branch of the Rothschild family took the “Lafite Spirit” that they’d nurtured on the great terroir of Pauillac and began to expand their empire. Starting in Bordeaux they procured nearby neighbour Château Duhart-Milon, then Château Rieussec in Sauternes and Pomerol’s Château l’Evangile. They then branched out into South America with Viña Los Vascos in Chile and Bodegas Caro in Argentina, then further afield in France with Languedoc’s Domaines d’Aussières and even into northeast China with a new project called Long Dai. The three Rothschild Barons came together in 2007 to create Champagne Barons de Rothschild. All these ventures work to the same exacting standards as the legendary First Growths, befitting of wine’s most iconic family.
