The 2010 Grand Puy Ducasse presents with deep colour and aromas that contain intense notes of fruit, as well as touches of liquorice 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.

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.
