The aromatic richness of a great red wine from Pauillac, fresh and smooth at the same time

The estate

With its vineyard situated on the greatest terroirs of PauillacChateau Grand-Puy Ducasse is one of the most beautiful properties in the prestigious appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Founded in 1675, this 5th Classified Growth is distinguished by its wines, which offer a very precise expression of the Pauillac terroir through its structure and incredible aging potential.

The vineyard

Patiently assembled by lawyer Pierre Ducasse in the 18th century, Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse today reigns over a 40-hectare vineyard, spread over three large plots. The vines, which are 25 years old on average, are planted on soils of Garonne gravel and silica gravel.

The vintage

The 2020 vintage opened with a very rainy and mild winter which immediately laid the foundations for an early vintage. The talent of the teams at the chateau was therefore put to the test of a very rapidly evolving vine cycle. Thanks to its great know-how, the estate has succeeded in enhancing, with its work, the solar, spicy, unctuous but also fresh and tight character of grapes, offering a wine bearing the signature style of the greatest vintages.

Winemaking and aging

Once harvests are carried out by hand and the grapes rigorously selected by manual then optical sorting, vinification is carried out in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Some of the batches carry out their malolactic fermentation in new barrels. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new.

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), complemented by Merlot (45%).

Tasting

The fruit of a beautiful vintage, the 2020 Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse will seduce the lovers of fine Pauillac red wines with its exceptional quality, marked by a very beautiful aromatic richness. This cuvee promises a superb aging potential.
