An inky/blue/purple color is followed by abundant notes of graphite cassis and blueberry liqueur offered in an opaque full-bodied layered structured wine. This prodigious Pauillac may be the finest wine ever produced at this estate and is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage as it remains one of the finest values for a classified growth Pauillac. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25+ years. Bravo!

Blueberry currants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Full body with velvety tannins and a long finish. Very well done here.

Mouthfilling with lots of fleshy crushed plum blackberry and currant fruit pushed by dark tobacco and roasted vanilla notes. Muscular but rounded and showing good integration already. -J.M.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot the Grand Puy Ducasse has a ripe raspberry redcurrant and wild strawberry bouquet quite showy for a Pauillac but not close to the delineation of Grand Puy Lacoste (for example.) The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins nicely balanced not complex but a lot of fruité towards the supple finish. This is a very fine Grand Puy Ducasse for medium rather than long-term drinking.

The floral bouquet on the nose is laden with aromas of lavender and violet. On the palate loads of coffee dark chocolate and new French oak persist on the palate for over 40 seconds. This is a fine effort and one that will have no problem lasting for 20+ years. Good power but not too much.
