Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 96 Points
Dense and rich, featuring concentrated dark plum, currant and dried blackberry flavors that are lively and powerful. Offers well-integrated tannins, with a long, elegant, minerally finish that delivers meaty and smoky notes.—Non-blind Don Melchor vertical (January 2020). Drink now through 2032. 7,850 cases made, 1,500 cases imported. — KM


Robert Parker: 94 Points
The current vintage is the 2014 Don Melchor, one of the icons of Maipo. The wine has been produced since 1987 from the best lots from their 127 hectares of vineyards in the Puente Alto appellation on alluvial terraces of the Maipo River at 650 meters altitude. In 2014 the bottled wine comes from 20 lots of free-run wine and 35 lots of press wine and contains some 8% Cabernet Franc. It matured in French oak barrels, 65% of them new, for some 15 months. The oak is perfectly integrated, and seeing how the wines from this terroir age, I wouldn't worry at all. This was a low yielding year, a balanced vintage not a lot warmer than 2013, which has resulted in a classical Don Melchor combining power with elegance, with those refined tannins and superb balance. There is a mixture of red and black fruit and even some fresh orange peel notes. Seeing how the older vintages age in bottle, it would be a shame to drink this now; and even if it's drinkable, I prefer them some ten years after the vintage. This is produced from virtually the same vineyards as Almaviva, yet the wines are so different. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2015.


James Suckling: 98 Points
James Suckling-Maipo Valley, Chile - ""Wonderful aromas of stones, mint and blackcurrants. Sweet tobacco. Tile and rust. So aromatic. This is the best Don Melchor I have ever tasted. Full body, very soft yet firm and silky. It has tension, intensity and balance."" WS 2017 Top 100 #90
