A rich and delicate Grand Vin de Margaux

The estate

Located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Giscours is a historic property of the Margaux appellation with vines planted for the first time in the 16th century. 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.

The vineyard

Château Giscours 2017 is a Margaux wine made from a 95-hectare vineyards used for production that is poised on a 300-hectare total surface area. A real gem, 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 blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (71%)

Merlot (24%)

Petit Verdot (5%).

Château Giscours 2017: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

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.
