Marks and reviews
Château Giscours is a historic property in the Margaux appellation, with vines first planted in the 16th century. Since 1995, Château Giscours has entered a new era in its history following its acquisition by the Albada Jelgersma family.
This superb Margaux 3rd Cru Classé is a true standard bearer for the Bordeaux region with its distinctive neoclassical palace-like architecture, its park of rare species and its buildings including the beautiful "Ferme Suzanne."
Château Giscours 2010 is a Margaux wine made from 94 hectares of vines in production. A real jewel, the singularity of the terroir of Château Giscours lies in the presence of 3 deep Garonne gravel ridges which play a decisive role in the ripening cycle of the grapes.
Winemaking and ageing
The ageing of the wine, which took 15 to 18 months on average, in line with the vintage, takes place in French oak barrels of which 50% are new and 50% of one wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon (71%)
Fine and with a rare elegance, this Margaux wine is distinguished by its subtle combination of a delicate touch and a rich and lingering aromatic palette.
