Description

The finesse of a powerful and aromatic Margaux Cru Classé

The estate


Located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Giscours is a historic property in the Margaux appellation, with vines first planted in the 16th century. This superb Margaux 3rd Cru Classé is a true flagship of the Bordeaux region, with its distinctive neoclassical palace architecture, its park of rare species and its buildings, including the beautiful "Ferme Suzanne." Since 1995, Château Giscours has entered a new era in its history following its acquisition by the Albada Jelgersma family.

The vineyard

The Château Giscours vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines in production on 300 hectares in total. A real jewel in the crown of the Margaux appellation, the Château Giscours terroir stands out for its 3 outcroppings of deep Garonnaise gravel, which play a decisive role in the ripening cycle of the grapes.

The vintage

At Château Giscours, the 2019 vintage revealed the typical character of each grape variety and each terroir. The harvest began on September 11 with the Merlot and ended on October 12. The Merlot displayed a different profile on each terroir. Some terroirs produced Merlots with juicy and fresh fruit while others produced rounded and more gourmet Merlot. At the winery, the vinifications were carried out in a way to preserve the finesse of the tannins.

Winemaking and ageing

Manual and optical sorting. Concrete and stainless steel vats. Maceration for 35 days at 28°. Aged for 17 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (65%)
Merlot (35%).
