Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Le Dix de Los Vascos originates from a plot of 70-year old vines known as “El Fraile, inaugurated to commemorate ten years of Domaine Baron de Rothschilds involvement in Chile. It is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere and 5% Syrah and has an ambitious bouquet of blackberry, macerated dark cherries, cocoa and dried blood. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins, a lot of bitter chocolate coating the dark berry fruit and a rather forceful, tannic finish that is missing some persistency in the mouth, but has the substance to suggest it will mellow and evolve more “gravitas with time. Drink 2015-2025.”,,, (Dec 2012)

Le Dix, meaning 10 in French, was introduced in 1996 to celebrate Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)'s first ten years in Chile. It is only produced in extraordinary vintage years. 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 Fraille (the best) combined with the most rigorous cuvee selection - the resulting wine is of world class stature.
Producer
The acquisition of Los Vascos by Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988 was the result of a careful search among more than 100 Chilean wines for one that could meet the Rothschild criteria for excellence. The property has been completely renovated, both in viticulture and viniculture. With over 2,200 contiguous hectares, 530 are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (95%) and Chardonnay (5%). Los Vascos is the largest vineyard in the Caneten Valley of Colchagua and can easily maintain its, “Estate Grown, Hand Picked, Hand Sorted, Estate Bottled” status.
