An elegant Margaux red wine

Château Giscours is a 3rd Classified Growth of 1855 produced in the Margaux appellation. The 95-hectare vineyard is planted on the gravelly soils of the Garonne and sands of glacial origin. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (50% of which are new) for 12 to 15 months, depending on the vintage. The 2012 vintage blends 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

The wines of Château Giscours are generally fine and elegant. One notes delicate and persistent aromas that reveal the typical elegance of this great Margaux. This wine can be kept for 8 to 20 years.

Attention, this comment will be brought into question over time due to the evolution of the organoleptic qualities in the wine.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the Château Giscours vertical and a few months later again at the property, the 2012 Château Giscours is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc picked between September 27 and October 17. It has a rather conservative nose with raspberry, fresh strawberry, tobacco and light licorice scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple black fruit, but with slightly aggressive acidity. Like the 2013, though to a lesser extent, it needs to show a little more concentration and finesse on the finish; but otherwise, enjoy this over the next decade or so. Tasted March 2016.
