Color: This wine is a beautiful purple colour with purple highlights.
Tasting Nose: Subtle and fresh, the nose exudes delicious fragrances of black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry), liquorice and spices with notes of mocha and cedar.
Palate: Smooth, the palate is seduced by this wine's robust tannins and its seductive persistence.
Vinification and Ageing: Once the grapes have been harvested by hand and rigorously selected by manual and optical sorting, the vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. Some of the batches undergo malolactic fermentation in new barrels. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new.
About the Winery:
With a vineyard located on the finest Pauillac terroirs, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse is one of the most beautiful estates in this prestigious appellation, located on the left bank of Bordeaux. Founded in 1675, this 5th Cru Classé stands out due to its Pauillac wines, which offer a precise definition of this exceptional terroir through their structure and incredible ageing potential. Patiently built up and assembled by the lawyer Pierre Ducasse in the 18th century, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse’s vineyard spreads across three large plots of land. Comprising 40 hectares of vines, the around 25-year-old vines rest on Garonne gravel with silica-gravelly soil.
