CONCHA Y TORO DON MELCHOR PUENTE ALTO

Don Melchor has been considered one of Chile’s iconic wines since its inception in 1987.This is a strong muscular style of wine. The palate is a sea, rolling waves of flavour excite and titillate the taste buds.

Dark flavourful blackcurrants are intertwined with the bitter sweet flavour of a 80% cocoa chocolate which is complimented by a hint of tobacco. Moving to the finish there is a impressive density, this is in no way rustic or clunky though, it is polished and precise.

Like an accomplished heavyweight boxer, his talent is not in his size or power ,but rather, his ability to control his size and deliver his power.


Luiz Gutierrez for eRobertParker.com: 94/100

I tasted three bottled vintages of the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon from the Puente Alto appellation in the Maipo Valley, the classical zone for the Bordeaux grape in Chile, starting with the 2011 Don Melchor; this wine had plenty of aromas of graphite, iron, cold ashes, blood and fresh meat -- denoting freshness and seriousness. This year only has 1% Cabernet Franc blended in -- one of the lower, if not the lowest years ever. With time, the more balsamic aromas emerge, which also gives some brightness and light to the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with some sweet fruit and the core of fine-grained, classical Cabernet tannins. This is a fresh, elegant vintage of Don Melchor, a prototype Cabernet from Alto Maipo. 125,000 bottles produced.​
