Chateau Grand Puy Ducasse is a fifth growth of Bordeaux. The estate comprises of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The estate, which produces up to 140 000 bottles each year, also offers their second wine ‘Prelude a Grand-Puy Ducasse’. This Chateau is somewhat unusual in that it is situated right in the heart of Pauillac, covering 40 hectares in total. It lies on some of the finest vineyard land in Pauillac, benefiting from the siliceous Garonne gravel soils.
The estate originated in the 18th century, when Arnaud Ducasse purchased a small residence on the banks of the Gironde estuary. It remained in the family for almost 3 centuries! Pierre Ducasse, his successor, really extended the estate. It was his son and inheritor who commissioned for the present Chateau to be built in 1820 and it was included in the 1855 classification.
