Château Grand-Puy Ducasse Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2010
"The recent resurrection and impressive quality emerging from Grand-Puy-Ducasse is obvious in their *prodigious 2010*. An inky/blue/purple color is followed by abundant notes of graphite, cassis and blueberry liqueur offered in an opaque, full-bodied, layered, structured wine. This prodigious Pauillac *may be the finest wine ever produced at this estate*, and is *undeniably a sleeper of the vintage* as it remains one of the finest values for a classified growth Pauillac. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25+ years. *Bravo!*"*Robert Parker Wine Advocate (92-94)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2013*

Mouthfilling, with lots of fleshy crushed plum, blackberry and currant fruit pushed by dark tobacco and roasted vanilla notes. Muscular, but rounded and showing good integration already. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Grand-Puy-Ducasse 6000ml

Blueberry, currants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Very well done here. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Grand-Puy-Ducasse 6000ml
Features loam, dark chocolate and steeped plum and black currant fruit, staying polished overall, with a singed apple wood note integrated through the solid finish. Shows excellent typicity. Best from 2015 through 2028.
This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot is an up-front, seductively styled Pauillac (one of the more forward and evolved wines from this appellation in 2010). Deep purple, with exceptionally subtle texture and oodles of cassis fruit as well as hints of mocha and white chocolate, it is an elegant wine, but the overall impression is one of considerable flesh, fat and succulence. It will be hard to resist now, but can be cellared for another 15+ years.
