2012 Château Grand-Puy Ducasse, 5ème Cru Classé
Exhibits a dense, almost opaque colour with gorgeous up-front, sweet, ripe fruit. The palate is medium to full bodied and chewy with a well endowed, plush texture. The wine is pure, complex and engaging.
The 40 hectares of the vineyard of this Grand Cru Classe are spread over three large plots located on the best terroirs of Pauillac. We owe this original configuration to its founder, Pierre Ducasse, an eminent lawyer who, through redemption and inheritance, succeeded in bringing together under one name this splendid vineyard in the 18th century. Thanks to a careful vintage and a custom-made breeding, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot offer here wines renowned for their complexity aromatic, typical of the best Pauillac, their beautiful structure and aging
