This complex vintage demanded stringent standards, responsiveness and sang-froid. Today, following the first tastings of the blends, we can say that rigour, constant attention, and technical expertise have enabled us to produce a deliciously juicy, distinguished, harmonious Grand Vin for 2012 Grand-Puy Ducasse. The Merlot was of outstanding quality and dominates the blend for this Pauillac in an exceptional fashion, bringing beautiful aromatic expression, and a superb balance that highlights the density and elegance of the tannins.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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. This is significantly better than the barrel samples tasted in March, 2013.
