Description

Complex and elegant, a fine red wine from Pauillac

The estate

With a vineyard located on the finest Pauillac terroirs, Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse is one of the most beautiful estates in this prestigious appellation, located on the left bank of Bordeaux. Founded in 1675, this 5th Cru Classe stands out due to its Pauillac wines, which offer a precise definition of this exceptional terroir through their structure and incredible ageing potentiel.

The vineyard

Patiently built up and assembled by the lawyer Pierre Ducasse in the 18th century, Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse’s vineyard spreads across three large plots of land. Comprising 40 hectares of vines, the around 25-year-old vines rest on Garonne gravel with silica-gravelly soil.

The vintage

The climatic conditions in 2014 were ideal until August, when a drought was recorded, causing water stress. Rainy spells in the last three weeks of August boosted the ripening phase.

Vinification and aging

Once the grapes have been harvested by hand and rigorously selected by manual and optical sorting, vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Some of the batches undergo malolactic fermentation in new barrels. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)

Merlot (40%).
