Grand-Puy Ducasse, Pauillac 2019

R770.00

Region: Pauillac

Tasting note:

The 2019 Grand Puy Ducasse is class personified. Just as in barrel, from bottle Grand-Puy Ducasse possesses terrific freshness and energy in place of the heavy, extracted style that was the norm just a few years ago. Readers will find a Pauillac endowed with tons of transparency and tons of sheer class. The 2019 is wonderfully sophisticated in every way. I loved it. Drink 2027-2044. 95P Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Feb ’22

The 2019 Château Grand-Puy Ducasse checks in as 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot from 35-year-old vines and classic Pauillac gravelly soils. It’s a deep, concentrated version of this wine, offering sensational blackcurrant and blueberry fruits intermixed with lots of chocolate, tobacco, and damp earth aromas and flavors. Superb on the palate as well, with full-bodied richness, a voluptuous texture, and loads of ripe tannins, it’s unquestionably the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted. Bravo! 93/95+P Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, June 2020
