About Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse 2014 Pauillac, Cru Classe

The history of Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse dates back to the middle of the 18th century when Arnaud Ducasse bought a small house next to the Gironde river. He obtained the land from Jacques de Segur. Segur is one of the famous names in the early days of Bordeaux, as they owned much of the land that is devoted to the top chateaux in the Medoc.


Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse has slowly but surely continued not only improving their wines, but keeping up with technological innovations. The 100 acre Medoc vineyard of Grand Puy Ducasse is planted to 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, which shows an increase in the amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyard, giving the wines more structure, tannin and complexity.


91 points James Suckling scored this 91 points saying "The forthright cassis note is immediately appealing, then the rather bold tannic structure sneaks up on you and shows that this is a serious wine. Maybe not quite the power and length of the appellation’s top wines in 2014, but still an impressive wine."

Wine Enthusiast magazine scored this 92 points saying "For the vintage, this is a particularly rich wine. It is structured and firm with opulent black-plum fruit that gives the wine a ripe character. Dense with supporting tannins, the wine is going to develop well over the medium term. Drink from 2022."
