Los Vascos is a vast estate that was acquired by DBR (Lafite) in 1988 which is located near Peralillo, within the Colchagua valley of Chile. Baron Eric de Rothschild searched for years for a vineyard that had the potential to produce world-class Carménère, and his judgment was certainly accurate as Los Vascos has proven to produce some of the most elegant and complex wines in the region.
The Vina Los Vascos Grande Reserve Carménère is beautiful purple crimson colour. The grape variety’s characteristics are reflected in the expression of fruit such as cherries, blackberries and plums. The nose offers notes of black pepper and bay, with hints of coffee, bitter chocolate, mint and nutmeg. On the palate, the attack is gentle, deep, balanced and seductive. This wine reveals the full potential of the Carménère grape.
