"The 2017 Grand-Puy-Ducasse is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with aromas of crushed red and black currants, black cherries and boysenberries with earth, meats and herbs touches. Medium-bodied, it is firm and rugged in the mouth with muscular fruit and a savory finish."
The 40 hectares vineyard are aged on average 25 years, planted with 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, spread over 3 large plots seated on a gravelly soil of the Pauillac appellation, and located close to exceptional neighbours, Mouton, Lafite and Pontet-Canet to the North. In the center, they occupy part of the Bourdieu Grand-Puy. To the south, they are located on the plateau of Saint-Lambert.
During the manual harvest, a first selection of the grapes is done directly in the vineyard. Upon arrival at the winery, the harvest is sorted one last time by hand with the greatest care, then each batch is vinified separately: total destemming, light crushing and vinification in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. After assembly, the aging extends from 18 to 24 months in oak barrels (30 to 40% new).
Since 2004, the domain belongs to the company CA Grands Crus, part of Credit Agricole Group.
