2015 Concha Y Toro Don Melchor
The history of Chilean wine dates to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, but the industry underwent a French revolution of sorts in the 19th century with the arrival of new grape varieties and vinification techniques.
Mr. Melchor Concha y Toro was at the vanguard of that movement and brought noble French varieties from Bordeaux. He planted those vines in the Maipo Valley in 1883 and laid the foundations of what is now Viña Concha y Toro.
For the 2015 vintage, leading North American wine critic James Suckling awarded Don Melchor an Extraordinary 98 points:
“The aromas of lead pencil, blackcurrant and tar are impressive with just a hint of fresh herb. Sweet tobacco. Iodine. Full body, very tight and polished with ultra-fine tannins and a refined, textured finish. 92% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot. Drink in 2022.”
