Marks and reviews
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 Château Giscours vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines in production, out of a total of 300 hectares. A real jewel in the crown of the Margaux appellation, the special feature of the Château Giscours terroir lies in the presence of 3 deep Garonne gravel hilltops, which play a decisive role in the grapes' ripening cycle.

Winemaking and ageing
Harvested by hand. Vinification in concrete and stainless steel vats at low temperature to preserve the aromatic potential and the integrity of the fruit. The wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.
Cabernet Sauvignon (24%)
Cabernet Franc (11%)
Petit Verdot (7%).
Aromas of black plums combine harmoniously with notes of incense and perfectly integrated oak.
Fine tannins, aromas of black fruit and soy, and a superbly structured, beautifully saline finish.
