2003 Grand-Puy Ducasse, Pauillac

SKU #1135761 93 points James Suckling

 Smells very New World with lots of jammy, very ripe fruit on the nose, like currants and raisins. Full bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a dried fruit finish. Tight and intense, give this three to four years.  (4/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This property is clearly on the upswing as evidenced by this wine. The open-knit, evolved 2003 is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage and a very good value for a top Pauillac. Deep ruby purple in color with an evolved bouquet of smoked herbs, cedar, creme de cassis, and plums, broad, full-bodied, savory flavors, and beautiful complexity, this wine is rich and long in spite of its forwardness. It will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink well for 12-15. A very strong effort. (RP)  (4/2006)

Wine Enthusiast

 One of the best vintages for many years from this rather forgotten property. The wine is developing fast, already well integrated, powerful and dense, but dominated by attractive, ripe fruit.  (5/2006)

Wine Spectator

 Aromas of fresh currant, berry and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, with fine, well-integrated tannins and a light chocolate, berry and blackberry aftertaste. Subtle and structured.  (6/2006)
