Winemaker Notes

Named after the founder of the winery, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro, this wine has become a symbol of the best that the land and the winemaker's hand can produce in Chile.

The Puente Alto Vineyard in the Maipo Valley has the perfect combination of climate and soils for producing world-class wine: the climate is ideal and predictable, and the soil is poor and gravelly to reduce yields and increase concentration naturally. After fermentation, the... View More

Shows alluring coffee bean, currant paste and fig aromas and flavors, with ample loamy tannins and a ripe, muscular finish where cocoa and tar notes hang on for added effect. Accessible now, but will improve with cellaring.

Wine & Spirits

From El Tocornal, on the north bank of the Maipo river, this latest release of Don Melchor is still too young to completely reveal its character. Menthol and black cherry aromas dominate the wine. The palate, severe and tight, speaks of strength and musculature rather than Melchor's usual gentleness.

Wine Enthusiast

In recent years, with winemaker Enrique Tirado firmly at the helm, Don Melchor has gotten better and better. And while 2004 was an average year in Chile, this ranks as the best Melchor we’ve sampled. The wine has beautiful blackberry, cola and pepper aromas in front of cassis, cherry, plum, nutmeg and cinnamon flavors. It’s brawny but balanced, with excellent natural acidity.

Deep ruby. Powerful blackberry, cassis and mocha aromas are enormously appealing and seem almost too big for the glass. Weighty dark berry flavors offer excellent palate coverage, with gentle tannins adding shape and suave minerality giving lift. Finishes with impressive clarity and persistence. This wine is sourced from a single site, the Puente Alto vineyard.
