The 2016 Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse wine is a classy Pauillac cru classé. The Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse wine has a inky in colour, very dark with violet reflections. The nose of this Pauillac is very dense and concentrated but boldly expresses fragrances rich in very delicious black fruits. The aromatic freshness is absolute and also creates an impression of tension. The palate is dynamic and the mid-palate is dense and with broad shoulders its is wrapped in fruits, organized around tannins of great maturity and noble juice. The end of the palate of the 2016 Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse wine is creamy, fresh and as a whole very balanced.
The winemaker will remember 2016 as an unprecedented vintage, with a very rainy spring and a summer without end. The tremendous harvest conditions of the 2016 Indian summer were reminiscent of those of the greatest vintages. For its blend Château Grand-Puy Ducasse chose 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. This Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse wine is very classy and of great keeping potential.
