Le Dix de Los Vascos 2004

86+ points

Colchagua, Chile. 13.5%

Los Vascos by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) is a wine I occasionally have when in the USA, this Chilean wine is preferable to many Californian competitors, although the bottle int he retail store is usually very yound.  So I was pleased to see this with a bit of age.  Essentially it’s a reserve wine, made to celebrate 10 years of Rothschild operating in Chile.  Unfortunately it wasn’t a lot of fun, dense fairly closed wine, lacking somewhat in elegance and certainly no distinctive style – it’s did not compare well against Grand Puy Lacoste 2004.

Give this 3 more years in bottle.
