Château Grand-Puy-Ducasse 2017 – Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, very discreetly tight and offers power, a fin grain and elegance. It reveals notes of blackberry, fleshy wild strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of violet, raspberry, graphite, spices as well as discreet hints of sweet spices/nutmeg and Bourbon vanilla. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/finely acidulous frame, minerality as well as a good definition. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy strawberry and small notes of small wild berries associated with fine touches of flowers (violet, iris), crunchy raspberry as well as a subtle hint of Tonka bean, Bourbon vanilla and toasted. An imperceptible hint of toasted hazelnut/caramelization on the finish/persistence.
