The freshness and fruitiness of a perfectly orchestrated Margaux

Château Giscours ranks among one of the most emblematic estates on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region, which is ideally located in the south part of the prestigious Margaux appellation.

Always recognized for the quality of its wines, Château Giscours has undergone further improvements in quality since Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma took over the estate with Alexander Van Beek as its director.

2017 was a vintage of contrasts and challenges, but 2017 confirms the excellence of Château Giscours, which ranks at the top as one of the most beautiful Margaux wines. Cabernet Sauvignon (71%) dominates the blend and Merlot (21%) and Petit Verdot (5%) supplement it. The Château Giscours 2017 has all the credentials of a perfectly orchestrated Margaux and it is the result of the sterling work from the estate’s technical team.

Elegant and fragrant, and almost sensual, the bouquet draws on pure black fruit, currant and blackberry aromas, delicate chocolate notes, along with subtle spice outlined with delicate floral scents. On the palate, all the finesse and refinement of the Giscours style is offered with a creamy texture. The mid-palate has a soft touch that focuses on the bright fruit. The tannins envelop the mouth, which give a lovely structure to this Margaux. The tannins extend to a persistent finish, which is pure and mineral. This is a perfectly orchestrated Giscours.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
