reviewsJames Suckling 92-93/100
This is chewy and structured with slightly austere tannins, but shows solid intensity. Ripe yet fresh fruit. Tannic.

The 2019 Grand Puy Ducasse has a clean, delineated, quite pure bouquet with perfumed blackcurrants, raspberries, cedar and pencil box aromas that would just benefit from a tad more intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, a fine bead of acidity, cohesive and harmonious with a lovely saline/briny note that surfaces towards the unusually (for this estate) finish. This is one of the best Grand Puy Ducasse wines that I have encountered from barrel. Excellent. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
