THE HISTORY

THIS VINE COMES FROM ONE OF
CHATEAU GRAND-PUY DUCASSE PLOTS SETTLED IN ONE OF THE MOST REKNOWN REGION : PAUILLAC
.

 

Château Grand-Puy Ducasse's story began when Arnaud Ducasse bought a “modest“ house on the banks of the river in Pauillac in 1675. Little did he know that it would become a large estate taht would remain in his family for almost three centuries ...

Pierre Ducasse, a lawyer with a passion for wine, considerably extended the land over three parishes - Pauillac, Saint-Lambert and Saint Sauveur - and three seigneuries: Lafite, Latour and Beychevelle.
In 1820, his son built the Château’s winery facing the Gironde estuary.
At the time, this was a daring decision: Grand-Puy Ducasse would be the only Château in the area to vinify its grapes for 200 years.
In 1855, the property was included in the prestigious classification of great growths; with 40 hectares of vines spread over
11 different types of soil, its vineyard can be considered as the most representative of the diversity of Pauillac’s terroirs.

Since the 1990s, major investments have been made in restructuring the vineyard.

In 2004, CA Grands Crus, a subsidiary of the Crédit Agricole Group, has embarked on an ambitious optimization plan.

The subsequent construction of a new vat room and barrel storage facilities completed the “Renaissance” plan.

The guiding principle of Château Grand-Puy Ducasse and its teams lead by Anne Le Naour and Benjamin Cassoulet is to push rigorous standards even further.

MERLOT :
 

Belonging to the Carmenets family, it takes its name from the “merle” (or merlau) designating small birds which love the grapes of this red grape variety.

Merlot produces round and powerful wines, rich in alcohol and color, with relatively low acidity.
We recognize Merlot by its deep red color coming from its red-skinned grapes and which then evolves towards a ruby color.

It provides aromas of red fruits, violets, blackberries and even prunes. As it ripens, we detect aromas of undergrowth and floral notes.

The best wines made from Merlot reveal varied flavors, spicy aromas, notes of vanilla and

cedar when aged in oak barrels
