Los Vascos Chardonnay 2011, Domains Barons de Rothschild Lafite
The brand Château Lafite Rothschild is one of the five Great Growths of Bordeaux and needs no introduction. The owners Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite have been expanded into the New World, selecting some great sites that possess the proper “terroir” to produce great New World wines under Lafite Rothschild’s unique stamp. One of their first new world ventures was that of Los Vascos in Chile’s Colchagua Valley.
From Chile’s premier regions for the varietal, comes this flavorful Chardonnay, Los Vascos 2011.
A brilliant pale straw color with golden reflections. It has an explosive nose of melon, grapefruit and exotic fruits coupled with the typical Chardonnay note of hazelnut. The palate is bursting with flavour – tropical fruits, peach and melon followed by a hint of spice with good structure and a long finish. . It can be paired with rich fish (salmon, tuna), vegetarian and poultry.
It is drinkable in 2012- 2015. A good wine for the price of approx. 14€.
