Los Vascos Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Grande Reserve 2017
Los Vascos is owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild, of Chateau Lafite Rothschild
Los Vascos Grande Reserve is a benchmark for elegance and finesse in Chile. A blend consisting mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is produced using traditional vinification and maturing techniques.
The colour is an intense ruby, with aromas of black cherry, cassis, vanilla, tobacco, cinnamon, cedar and spices. Later, the nose develops into ripe black fruit such as mulberry and cherry with a note of blackcurrant. In the mouth, it is rich, round and fleshy. The tannins are silky and elegant and the wine has impressive length with a pleasant peppery and liquorice finish.
The Corky Verdict
Amy –In our opinion this is one of the best wines produced in Chile. This is gorgeous!
Sam –An impressive wine from a world renowned producer. Full of rustic charm on the nose, rounded fruit from the Carmenère and a touch of spice in the finish.
