Tasting Note

Classic Pauillac cedar and blackcurrant aromas combine with deliciously succulent texture and silky tannins, making this a delicious wine to enjoy immediately and over the next 7-8 years.

Recognised for quality in the 1855 classification of Bordeaux, Château Grand Puy Ducasse experienced decades of neglect before investment in both vineyard and cellar has massively improved the wine.  Happily, prices have not yet caught up with the quality, making this one of today's best value 'cru classé' Pauillacs.

The vineyard covers an area of 45 hectares of desirable free-draining gravelly soil, situated near the illustrious châteaux Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Batailley.  The vines are approximately two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot:  these proportions are reflected (with some variation) in the finished wine, which is matured in small oak barrels (around one-third are first fill) for 18 months before bottling.

Product Information

Press

  • 92/100 - This is structured for the vintage with lots of polished tannins and pretty fruit to add. Full-bodied but racy and refined. Very well done for the vintage.

  • 90/100 - This is another estate in Pauillac that has dramatically raised its performance level over the last decade. The 2012, from grapes harvested between October 2 and 17, has supple tannins and a nice mouthfeel that builds incrementally, offering up plenty of crème de cassis, plum and blackberry fruit. The wine is soft, round, opulently textured, and an undeniable success for 2012. The purity of fruit is also admirable. Drink this medium to full-bodied Pauillac over the next 20 years.
