    2014 Margaux from Bordeaux

    The 2014 Chateau Giscours is a very expressive, scrumptious Margaux Troisième Cru Classé on an aromatic palette rich of black fruits (smashed blackberry, blackcurrant) and red berry (wild raspberry) on some balsamic fragrances. The palate carries a delicate tannic structure, both strong (sap with tight and fine grain) and pleasant on the finish. The well-extracted tannins build a solid structure in this classic yet strong wine. The balanced whole foreshadows a good ageing potential

    Parker : 92 / 100

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Giscours has come on leaps and bounds since I tasted it twice in barrel. It is clearly more sophisticated and complex than the du Tertre on the nose. For a start, there is more fruit concentration with red cherries, raspberry and blackcurrant laced with cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, pure red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit with a precise finish that the property never used to be able to offer. This is a lovely Margaux that should drink well for 20 years.
