Average Score 88.8

This young red shows a serious concentration of fruit for the vintage with firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish.
The 2017 Grand Puy Ducasse, which was picked 13 September to 3 October, has a light violet-scented bouquet that you might mistake for a Margaux. There is moderate intensity here, though it does not manifest the complexity of the top tier Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, although it feels a little hard towards the finish where I would like more fruit to develop and fill in the gaps. Tasted three times with consistent notes.
Deepish crimson with purple rim. Clean-cut blackcurrant fruit on the nose and just a hint of char. Rather soft on the palate, and pretty light on fruit so that the chalky tannins finish slightly dry. (JH)
The 2017 Grand Puy Ducasse is a powerful, dark wine. Black cherry, chocolate, menthol and licorice give the Grand-Puy Ducasse much if its distinctive character. Technical Director Anne Le Naour gave the lots 3-5 days of cold soak followed by 3-4 weeks of time on the skins with minimal pumpovers and punchdowns. Most of the wine (80%) underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel. As always, this is a potent style of Pauillac. Hubert de Bouärd consults. Tasted three times.
The 2017 Grand-Puy-Ducasse is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of fresh blueberries and black currants plus touches of underbrush, pencil lead and mocha. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm, chewy tannins and something of a roasted note, finishing just a little bitter. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
