Prelude Grand-Puy Ducasse Paulliac 16750ml
Three large plots in the best parts of Puillac form the Grand Cru Classe which was cultivated and configured by Pierre Ducasse in the 18th century. Renowned for aromatically complex, well structured Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine is true to the classic Pauillac style. Hand picked and de-stalked the grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks then aged from 18-24 months in French oak barrels, 30%-40% of which are new. Alluring graphite and cedar on the nose with juicy black-currant, black cherry and mocha that meld into a richly textured, lenghty finish. Excellent aging potentional, but perfectly fine to drink now.
