A Classy 3rd Growth from Margaux

This Classified 3rd Growth from Margaux, Chateau Giscours is produced on a 95 hectare vineyard. Giscours 2016 is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot. These grape varieties, experienced a very successful vintage with remarkable qualities.

Chateau Giscours 2016 is very dark, almost ink-like. The nose reveals concentrated aromas of black fruits, but is still quite shy. In the mouth, the wine is dense and ample, with weight from the tannins. The wine is straightforward and elegant, with contained power. A wine in the style of Cabernet Sauvignon is classy and remarkably precise.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Giscours gives up aromas of cassis, chocolate, earth, tar, pepper and hoisin with touches of flowers and a meaty nuance. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a great core and a long finish.
