    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep color and aromas that contain intense notes of fruit, as well as touches of licorice and mild spices. The palate is stylish, with tannins that are finely structured, clearly ready for the long haul. The final impression is powerful yet classy, quite free of any weightiness.

    Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    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!

    Blueberry, currants and blackberries on the nose and palate. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Very well done here.

    James Suckling

    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.

    Wine Spectator

    Tough at the moment, this is a wine with impressive concentration. It's solid and chunky, with massive structure. The fragrant finish is a sign of the pleasure to come.
