Jancis Robinson, one of the world’s most recognized and influential wine critics, recently published an article ‘Don Melchor – A real Chilean Icon’ on her website Here Robinson further cements Don Melchor’s iconic status within the world of fine wine. Below is a brief snapshot of the article.

"Don Melchor has long been the flagship Cabernet of Chile's dominant, and admirably well run, wine producer Concha y Toro. Ten years after the first vintage of Don Melchor in 1987 Concha y Toro began a joint venture with the team at Ch Mouton Rothschild to produce Almaviva virtually next door but, as winemaker Enrique Tirado put it, 'Almaviva is a Bordeaux blend whereas Don Melchor is Chilean history.”

2010 Don MelchorCabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto – 18 Points – “Juicy and hugely flattering”
2011 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto – 18 Points – “…something regal.” “Very refined.”
