This Château Grand-Puy Ducasse 2017 displays the power and strength of the great Pauillacs. Aromas of black cherry, delicious dark chocolate flavours, fresh cedar and subtle smoky notes of tobacco leaves, the aromatic bouquet faithfully represents the style of the estate.
On the palate, the wine has a beautiful juicy texture revealing the crispness of the fruit, while the chewiness of the tannic structure provides structure and body, balanced by the brilliant acidity of the tannins. The end stretches into a finish full of freshness. The excellence of a great Pauillac wine, classic and timeless.
The 2017 Grand-Puy-Ducasse is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with aromas of crushed red and black currants, black cherries and boysenberries with earth, meats and herbs touches. Medium-bodied, it is firm and rugged in the mouth with muscular fruit and a savory finish.
