Wine tasting notes

Ruby red color with beautiful brick-like nuances. Ripe plum and cherry-scented nose that also features notes of licorice, saffron, cinnamon, and nutmeg that enhance the complexity of aromas. Notes of graphite, clove, dark chocolate and cedar take the experience to a whole new level. Le Dix 2016 is a smooth and supple wine with sweet and friendly tannins. A joyful intellectual. Serve at 16-18ºC

Expert reviews

James Suckling (2016) - 93 pts

This has an attractive array of bright dark berries with a creamy-oak edge that leads to a very fleshy and attractive palate with a fresh-herb streak that cuts the finish crisply. Drink or hold.


Wine Enthusiast (2016) - 93 pts

Ripe, nicely oaked berry aromas are well presented, while this Cabernet-led blend is tight, pure and fresh in feel. Herbal berry and plum flavors are layered with earth and spice notes, with wood spice and a touch of chocolate rising up on the finish. Drink through 2025. MICHAEL SCHACHNER


Decanter (2016) - 95 pts

This 20th vintage of Baron Eric de Rothschild’s top Los Vascos wine in Chile is such a classy and elegant blend. Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) with smaller percentages of Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, it is testament to Chile’s reputation for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Complex aromas of damsons, currants, cedar and graphite are met by a beautifully balanced palate marked by a refined structure of round yet grained tannins. Elegant and ripe.
