Château
Grand-Puy Ducasse

Pauillac
Grand Cru Classé en 1855
CA Grands Crus
This classified growth consists of three large plots with some of the finest terroir in Pauillac: the northern plot is a neighbour of Mouton and Lafite, the central plot is located in a part of the commune called Grand-Puy, and the southern plot is on the Saint-Lambert plateau.

This unusual configuration was due to the estate’s founder,
Pierre Ducasse, an eminent lawyer who pieced together this splendid vineyard with land he inherited or purchased in the 18th century.

Grand-Puy Ducasse has recently entered a new phase of its history with a decided upswing in quality. This is largely thanks to a study of the potential of each vineyard plot and a change in vineyard management. The vines are now trained higher and each different grape variety has been perfectly matched to the most suitable terroir.

Ripe, healthy Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, coupled with rigorous production methods, account for Grand Puy Ducasse’s reputation for aromatic complexity, beautiful structure, and excellent ageing potential. It is the epitome of a fine Pauillac.
