The web site of the specialized wine critic, James Suckling, highlighted the 2021 Don Melchor with an excellent 99 points.

The nearly perfect score was delivered by  Zekun Shuai, senior editor for, after his visit to Chile to compile material for his upcoming report on Chilean wines.

Along with the 99 points, Zekun Shuai described the 2021 Don Melchor as having “Ashy graphite, cassis, iron, blackberries and a hint of cigar box and chocolate. Lots of violets, too. Rich and intense with a full-bodied palate. Showing density and very fine but structured tannins. Long and intense finish with lots of flavors… One of the best over the last few years.”

Zekun Shuai has been a senior editor for the website for more than three years and is in charge of tasting the wines from South America.
