The 2014 Grand-Puy Ducasse is a 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot blend. With a deep and intense hue, this Pauillac exhibits very intense fruits and spicy notes. The palate is elegant with silky noble tannins. The finish is powerful and distinguished. Great ageing potential!
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Grand-Puy-Ducasse has a conservative, rather backward and tertiary nose that needs to demonstrate more fruit intensity. Pleasant enough, but not as memorable as its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, more weight than it demonstrated from barrel, although the second half is very linear and refuses to fan out. It cuts away a little short. Not bad, but there is still room for improvement.
