    Cuvée presentation

    The vineyard is planted with 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot. This variety of terroirs and judicious choice of grape variety make Grand-Puy Ducasse an elegant, distinguished wine, with a subtle bouquet, that reaches full expression after a few years of ageing.

    Information about domain Château Grand Puy Ducasse

    This splendid property dates back to the 17th century and was classified as a fifth growth in 1855. It enjoys a good reputation with wine enthusiasts, especially since the 1990s, when major initiatives undertaken to improve the wine began to bear fruit. The property was purchased in 1971 and totally restructured and enlarged. However, the real turning point was in 2004 when CA Grands Crus (Crédit Agricole Bank) bought the château and optimized the vineyard. At the same time, Denis Dubourdieu was called in as consultant oenologist.

    Today, the 40 hectares of vines are distributed over three plots with gravelly soil that, on the northern edge, adjoin the prestigious châteaux of Mouton, Lafite and Pontet-Canet. In the centre they are located around Grand Puy, and to the south, on the Saint Lambert plateau. Grand-Puy Ducasse also produces a second wine that is called Prélude à Grand-Puy Ducasse.
