Château Grand Puy Ducasse

When, in the middle of the 18th century, Arnaud Ducasse bought a small house on the banks of the Gironde estuary from Jacques de Ségur, Seigneur of Lafite, he could hardly have imagined that this would be the start of a considerable estate that would remain in his family for almost three centuries.

A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour. It shows sweet aromas. Fleshy. Chocolate coulant taste.
Did not seem well with fish, I would have preferred a vegetable stew.
My friends wanted me to taste it.
It was a gift.
A real evergreen of wines.

2013 is a challenging vintage. Despite a relatively late maturity, the heat of August was beneficial for the Cabernet Sauvignon. The Castle has focused lots of Cabernet Sauvignon that underpin an elegant tannic structure. As for the Merlots, they give the delicacy of the fruit. Harvesting is done manually with a first sorting in the vineyard. The grapes are sorted again by means of an optical sorting device latest generation. The wine was produced in thermo-regulated tanks. Part of Lots operates its malolactic fermentation in new barrels.
This 2013 vintage makes a comeback. Its 62% Cabernet gives it a nice tannic structure, highlighted by a generous fruit by Merlot. It will seduce you with its roundness.

It had been opened at a wine event.
I did not like the colour with these brown edges. However the taste was quite good. This 2019 has a toffee aftertaste. I liked the taste of blackberries in this Château Grand Puy Ducasse.
We had it with a birthday cake.

Better pair it with vegetables. Fine! We enjoyed it.
Red wine with reddish brown edges. Main smell of caramel. Perfect balance of acidity.
