Brilliant deep purple color. Still slightly austere with some tannin in the finish, but it's a classic, elegant, medium-bodied Pauillac that has aged nicely and is approaching its peak. Attractive smoky, tobacco-tinged nose with cassis and dark berry flavors. Purchased as a future in the early 90's, this wine was a great bargain. Grand Puy Ducasse is still one of the best affordable Bordeaux's. - HK 2000-12-25
