The freshness and fruitiness of a perfectly orchestrated Margaux

Chateau Giscours ranks among one of the most emblematic estates on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region, which is ideally located in the south part of the prestigious Margaux appellation.

Always recognized for the quality of its wines, Chateau Giscours has undergone further improvements in quality since Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma took over the estate with Alexander Van Beek as its director.

2017 was a vintage of contrasts and challenges, but 2017 confirms the excellence of Chateau Giscours, which ranks at the top as one of the most beautiful Margaux wines. Cabernet Sauvignon (71%) dominates the blend and Merlot (21%) and Petit Verdot (5%) supplement it. The Chateau Giscours 2017 has all the credentials of a perfectly orchestrated Margaux and it is the result of the sterling work from the estate’s technical team.

Elegant and fragrant, and almost sensual, the bouquet draws on pure black fruit, currant and blackberry aromas, delicate chocolate notes, along with subtle spice outlined with delicate floral scents. On the palate, all the finesse and refinement of the Giscours style is offered with a creamy texture. The mid-palate has a soft touch that focuses on the bright fruit. The tannins envelop the mouth, which give a lovely structure to this Margaux. The tannins extend to a persistent finish, which is pure and mineral. This is a perfectly orchestrated Giscours.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Giscours is scented of crushed black currants, blackberry tart and black raspberries with touches of Indian spices, Sichuan pepper and violets plus a waft of chocolate box. Medium-bodied with wonderful freshness defining the palate and elevating the red and black fruits, it finishes with a nice ripe, grainy texture paving the way.
