Concha y Toro Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||Chile, Maipo Valley, Puente Alto|
|Brand||Concha y Toro|
The Don Melchor line has been receiving the highest awards consistently since its beginnings, cementing its position as one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons to be produced in Chile, or indeed anywhere in the world.
There is a little more ripeness in the 2019 Don Melchor, which in warmer years shows notes of ripe plums and is subtly balsamic. The palate is round and powerful, with good balance and nice integration of the oak. As usual, there is a combination of elegance and power, with subtle mintiness and harmony. 156,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in December 2020.
