Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse, 5th Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac, 2015, 75cl

75.20 /L

Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse ajalugu ulatub 18. sajandisse, Arnaud Ducasse ostis siis maja Gironde jõe kallastele. Huvitava faktina saab välja tuua, et nende veinimõis ei asugi viinamarjaistanduste vahel. Viinapuid kasvatatakse 40 hektaril ja sellest 62% on Cabernet Sauvignoni all. Viinapuude keskmiseks vanuseks on 30 aastat. Veine laagerdavad nad keskmiselt 18 kuud tammest vaatidest, millest 50% on tavaliselt uued vaadid.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 90-92 points
The 2015 Grand-Puy-Ducasse has a classic pencil lead and cedar-scented bouquet that feels just a little foursquare at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of spice on the entry. This is underpinned by quite robust tannin, but fortunately this Pauillac forages finesse towards the finish that is well balanced and offers attractive persistence. While not as showy out of barrel, I suspect it may coalesce and turn into one of the better wines from this estate in recent years. My banded score based upon that optimism. (NM) (4/2016)

Wine Enthusiast – 94 Points
This generous, ripe wine is filled with fine tannins as well as juicy black-currant fruits. It is approachable in the sense that the fruit is so delicious. However, watch for those tannins that are firm and dense and will allow the wine to age. Best to wait until 2024. (RV) (12/2017)
