2009 Château Grand-Puy Ducasse


Our friend popped open this barely legal, but sipping nicely “claret” as the first of two Pauillacs of the evening.

Ruby red with darker, purple like shadows. Bouquet of red, candy like syrup with liquorice and hints of toasty-oak and slight vegetation.

Palate of fairly straightforward Pauillac “claret”….very good, but not special. Very subtle (too subtle, you ask?) tannins.

Reasonably priced, good Pauillac. Perhaps she will show her true self circa 2020?
