The U.S. magazine Wine Spectator awarded 95 points to the 2017 vintage of Don Melchor
The U.S. magazine Wine Spectator recently recognized Don Melchor 2017 with a score of 95 points. This vintage–which is the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon’s 31st–, represents a great harvest for Don Melchor, with extraordinary elegance and balance. It is composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. This new score adds to the Don Melchor’s past achievements in Wine Spectator, where it has been recognized nine times among the 100 Top Wines of the World –and three times among the top 10–, confirming its position among the top Cabernet Sauvignons in Chile and the world. "Suave, complex and elegant, with fine-grained tannins supporting the dried cherry, red plum and currant flavors. Cedar and forest floor notes show midpalate, leading to a long finish of cocoa powder and baker’s chocolate details, accented by hints of apple wood smoke and white pepper."
