Grand Puy Ducasse

This underrated fifth growth is a fantastic Pauillac and annually represents excellent value for money. A large part of the wine making process is done by hand at Grand Puy Ducasse and the resulting wine is balanced, fresh and modern. The wine is abundantly age-worthy with a great aromatic complexity that is decidedly Pauillac in character.

Grand-Puy Ducasse 1996 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (87)

This estate, which tends to turn out forward, soft Pauillacs, has made a firm, structured wine. The color is a healthy dark ruby with purple nuances. The nose offers up aromas of cassis, dusty, earthy notes, tobacco leaf, cedar, and spice. Medium-bodied, with excellent depth and ripeness, and the Cabernet Sauvignon component dominating its personality, this is a fine Grand-Puy-Ducasse that should be reasonably priced. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2015.

A pretty nose of lead pencil and currant follows through to a full body, with well-integrated tannins and a silky, long finish. Stylish. Score range: 91-94

A smoky mix of cedar, licorice and cassis start off the nose of this wine which is medium to full-bodied shows gentle, refined tannins and a freshness in the fruity, open finish. 91-92 Pts

Decanter (93)

A big vintage of Grand-Puy Ducasse, continuing the ambition shown over recent vintages. The coffee bean aromatics are perfectly judged to give an appealing hint of oak, alongside cedar notes and dark cassis fruits. There is an austerity to the opening beats of the wine, and the tannins make their presence felt right the way through. Overall this is excellent. It is unusual to have such good yields, close to 50hl/ha, with equally good quality. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.

Grand-Puy Ducasse 2017 (6x75cl)

Decanter (88)

Starts slow, builds over the palate, the tannins are a little soft for such an early stage on the attack, but they gather themselves and this has Pauillac backbone as it unrolls in the glass. Feels like the fruit struggled to get fully ripe, and it although it has classicism and clever restraint, it never quite takes off as you hope.

This is really solid with a dense and deep palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Muscular for this cru. Full-bodied yet energetic and intense.

Jeb Dunnuck (93-96)

The deep, inky-hued 2020 Château Grand-Puy Ducasse has a seriously impressive, balanced, full-bodied, structured style that's going to reward patience. Pure crème de cassis, black raspberry, graphite, lead pencil, and spring flower notes all define the bouquet, and it has plenty of background oak, a dense, chewy mid-palate, lots of tannins, and a great finish. It's going to need to be forgotten for 7-8 years but will evolve for 30 years or more.
