This Chilean estate produces some of the most consistently highly rated Cabernet Sauvignon in world. Helmed by Enrique Tirado, working hand in hand with top Bordeaux consultant Eric Boissenot, this Alto Maipo Valley estate sits 650 metres above sea level on an ancient alluvial terrace left by retreating Andean glaciers. Planted almost entirely (90%) with Cabernet Sauvignon, Dol Melchor's terroir is the ideal combination of rocky soils and cooling breezes blowing down from the Andes for these 30-year-old vines.

 

With an extraordinary 100 points from James Suckling, the 2018 vintage has been catapulted into history as the first ever perfect score for Don Melchor. Given this wine's brilliance in relation to its reasonable price, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has earned itself a place on the Wine Spectator's exclusive "Collectible Wines List", reserved for exceptional wines more than worth the money.

Don Melchor

Don Melchor is simply "the benchmark for Chilean wine", according to Wine Advocate. The estate produces the most consistently highly-rated Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. Decanter has drawn a direct parallel between the quality of Don Melchor and the best Cabernet Sauvignon terroirs of the world, asserting that Don Melchor “stands next to the best wines in the world based on Cabernet Sauvignon, including those of Bordeaux and the Napa Valley” (Decanter). The Don Melchor vineyard sits 650 metres above sea level on an ancient alluvial terrace left by retreating Andean glaciers. It is planted 90% with Cabernet Sauvignon (30+ years vines), which find an ideal terroir between the rocky soils and cooling breezes blowing down from the Andes. We were thrilled for the Don Melchor team when we learned that James Suckling had scored the 2018 wine a perfect 100 points (for the first time), after the 99 points received by the 2017 vintage.
