It was a crisp fall day when Los Vacos hosted a special luncheon last month. The celebratory event hosted by Claudio Naranjo, General manager of Vina Los Vascos – Domaines Barons de Rothschild, was an exquisite moment.
Attendees gathered on the 39th floor of Gaonnuri for samplings of some of the best in the industry. Over a delightful conversation and scrumptious Korean barbeque, guest indulged in senses and tastes.
Several bottles were introduced that brought forth warm feelings representative of the brand and the workers who passionately have created award-winning products over the years. Claudio shared a selection of their top wines showcasing the Elegance of Lafite and the Terroir of Chile. There was also a grand opportunity to taste pre-release vintages, as well as vintages back to 2004 from their estate vineyards with average vine ages up to 90 years.
Los Vascos Rose 2018 is a surprising wonder. The pale pink glass has sweet notes of strawberry and a great volume that is creamy in texture.
The Sauvignon Blanc 2017 has beautiful aromas of melon, green apple, pineapple, and lime with notes of lemongrass. This crowd pleaser matches well with a variety of vegetables and light meats. The 2017 Chardonnay is another beautiful pale, bright yellow selection that highlights floral aromas and is rich and creamy in texture. For those who are not normally fans of Chardonnay there is a pleasure found here that is unique and not overwhelming in woody undertones.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon deep, ruby red tone is matched with a bright plum and raspberry note that sparkles. For a follow-up the 2016 Grande Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a flavorful wine with beautiful notes of hazelnut, nutmeg, tobacco, and cocoa.
For a grand finale, the 2015 Le Dix De Los Vacos is superbly gorgeous. There is no better offering to represent the property with it being beautifully balanced and harmonious in design.
Consumers will love the price points and the selections across the board. Here is to a beautiful fall of wine with Los Vacos from Chile and across the globe.
