(5/1/2019) "Coming from this vastly improved estate, this wine offers rich tannins, concentration, power and density. Blackberry flavors add a more immediately approachable side to this wine that should be ready to drink from 2024."
(2/3/2019) "A medium-bodied and elegant Pauillac with fine, mixed-currant aromas, polished tannins and a lively finish. Drink or hold."
(11/30/2021) "Grand-Puy Ducasse continues to improve. Medium-bodied, floral with some leafy notes combined with blueberry and cassis fruit, supported by smoky, tobacco hints there is enough density, smooth tannins and a dash of acidity to provide some good value, classed-growth Pauillac drinking over the next decade. Not the most complex but fairly priced. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035."
