Producer: Chateau Giscours
Château Giscours is one of the largest properties in the Médoc. The vineyard’s soil consists of gravel on sandy-gravelly subsoil. The creation of a lake near the château has improved the soil’s drainage. The exceptional terroir benefits from all of the factors necessary for the production of high quality wines: good orientation, very warm soil in the spring, root permeability, fertility, and regulation of the water supply in the summer. Giscours’ wines are concentrated, generous and rich, with well-integrated tannins. Particularly seductive when young, they have a potential to age for several years in good vintages. Note that there is also an excellent second wine, the Sirène de Giscours.
A very refined red – one of the best Giscours in years. It’s colour is of a deep cherry-red, with bluish-violet highlights that show its youth and its nobleness. The complex bouquet has many fruity hints: black and red fruits, ripened by the summer heat. The taste of it gives the evidence of an exceptional structure. Tannins are tight-knit, but softly blended.
ABV 12.5% – 75cl
