Description

A generous and delicious Cru Classé from Margaux

The estate

Located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Giscours is a historic property in the Margaux appellation, with vines first planted in the 16th century. This superb Margaux 3rd Cru Classé is a true flagship of the Bordeaux region, with its distinctive neoclassical palace architecture, its park of rare species and its buildings, including the beautiful "Ferme Suzanne." Since 1995, Château Giscours has entered a new era in its history following its acquisition by the Albada Jelgersma family.

The vineyard

The Château Giscours vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines in production on 300 hectares in total. A real jewel in the crown of the Margaux appellation, 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 vintage

Winter, which combined sunshine with uneven but abundant rainfall, encouraged bud break to be early by 15 days. Mild and punctuated by rainy episodes, spring was marked by a flowering which began a dozen days early. Summer was particularly hot. The discipline of the team at the château, as well as the preserved water reserves, allowed the vines to develop in the best conditions in spite of significant temperature differences. The alternation of hot days and cool nights in September was ideal for preserving aromatic richness, the concentration of the grapes as well as the vibrant energy of the fruit. Carried out on a plot-by-plot basis, depending on the age of the plots, the harvest allowed for the fruit to be picked at full ripeness.

Winemaking and ageing

Manual and optical sorting. Vinification in concrete and stainless steel vats at low temperatures to preserve the aromatic potential and wholeness of the fruits. Maceration for 35 days at 28°C. Ageing lasts for 17 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new wood.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (56%)
Merlot (44%).
