<10 tasting notes
Even though it's still very young and it's not going to be released for some months, the 2016 Don Melchor shows great elegance and poise. This might be a lighter year for Don Melchor, but it has more finesse, lower alcohol (the label says 14%, when it was traditionally 14.5%) and great balance. This has a velvety texture, with very fine and round tannins and very good freshness. There are some balsamic notes, and the wine feels undeveloped, but it has the balance and stuffing to develop nicely in bottle and for a long time.
Concha y Toro is one of the largest wineries in the world, but it's also respected for producing some high-quality wines. They own some 9,700 hectares of vineyards in ten different valleys, from north to south: Limarí, Aconcagua, Casablanca, Leyda, Maipo, Cachapoal, Colchagua, Curicó, Maule and Bío Bío. They produce something like 190 million bottles. Yes, you read it correctly, that's 190 million bottles. And the quality, in the ranges I tasted, was very impressive, irrespective of the volumes produced.
