This superb 3rd Classified Growth of Margaux is a true standard of the Bordeaux region, with its distinctive architecture resembling a neoclassical palace, its unique park and its buildings, including the beautiful "Ferme Suzanne". In 1995, Château Giscours entered a new era of its history following its acquisition by the Albada Jelgersma family.

Elegant and fragrant, almost sensual, the bouquet is marked by the purity of black fruit, blackcurrant and blackberry aromas. The delicious chocolate notes mingles with delicate spicy and floral nuances.
On the palate, all the finesse and refinement of Château Giscours’ signature style is expressed through a smooth texture, with a mellow mid-palate focused on the brightness of the fruit. The coated tannins structure this Margaux wine nicely and leads to a long, lingering, mineral and pure finish.
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Giscours offers pretty plum preserves, warm cassis and wilted roses scents with fragrant earth and cinnamon stick hints. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and plush with lovely expressiveness and a bit of spice on the finish.
