Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse Pauillac 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse|
Thanks to impeccable harvesting and tailor-made winemaking, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot produce a wine renowned for its aromatic complexity, glorious structure and ageing capacity, all true to the classic Pauillac style.
Coming from this vastly improved estate, this wine offers rich tannins, concentration, power and density. Blackberry flavors add a more immediately approachable side to this wine that should be ready to drink from 2024.
Features a core of juicy plum and blackberry fruit, liberally inlaid with singed cedar details and chalky minerality. The fruit is solid, but the cedar element echoes longest on the finish, leaving this wine on the rustic side of the ledger. Best from 2023 through 2032. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,333 cases made.
