ABOUT THE WINE
Unusually for the region, the chateau of Grand-Puy-Ducasse is not located in the same area as the vineyards, the former being on the banks of the Gironde, and the latter being away from the river, 40 hectares dotted throughout the Pauillac appellation. Consistent improvement to this previously unheralded estate has seen a marked upswing in quality and consistency.

TASTING NOTES
Ruby-hued, with earth, cassis and cedar aromas. Bright cranberry and cassis fruit, with rounded tannins. This is only just beginning to enter its drinking window, with plenty of structure for further ageing.

FOOD PAIRING
Partner with mushroom ragout or braised meats.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A delightful wine from an estate on the rise; excellent value for a 5eme Cru Pauillac, drinking well until 2030.
