Château Grand-Puy Ducasse ‘Prelude a Grand-Puy Ducasse’ Pauillac 2016: Full-bodied. Distinct medium-plus tannins. High acidity. Blackberry. Plum. Cassis. Vanilla. Earth. Oak. Long dry finish. Consisting of a fine mix of Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot, this blend hits all the right notes: elegant & smooth, rich & ripe. Bottom line, this is a beautiful, well-made wine. If I had a second bottle, I would definitely cellar as time will only benefit it. Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 6 months ago

Toasted notes, floral, violet, rose, blackberry, blackcurrant, black truffle, tobacco. Beautiful flexibility, with pretty evolved notes that blend with ageing, on a fruitiness that is still very lively, the balance is charming.
Notes toastées, floral, violette, rose, mûre, cassis, truffe noire, tabac. Belle souplesse, avec de jolies notes évoluées qui se fondent à l’élevage, sur un fruité encore bien vif, l’équilibre est charmant. — 9 months ago
A blend of 92% Merlot & 8% Cab Franc, elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classé in 2012, deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits, complex spice and notes of forest floor. On the palate flavors blackberry and black cherry with notes of cacao, espresso and licorice. Fine smooth tannins, great mouthfeel, long finish ending with toasty cedar notes and earthy mineral character. Just starting to show beautifully and will for next decade. Nice! — 2 months ago
