2019 Château Giscours, 3ème Grand Cru Classé Margaux is now released
Château Giscours is one of the largest Margaux properties with over 80ha of vineyards. Classified as a 3rd growth in 1855, the estate belongs today to Pierre Tari and Eric Albada who invested in the latest technology and modernised the winery. Château Giscours is regaining its fame.
This is a serious Giscours, with medium intensity violet-edged ruby colour. High aromatics on the nose with cumin and cloves, followed by black cherry and cassis fruits that do a good job of filling the palate, and a cooling menthol finish as the tannins close in. Enjoyable overall, succulent yet with precision. Harvest lasted for an entire month, from September 11 to October 12, the longest ever at the estate and a reflection of more precise plot-by-plot work, with vines separated according to age and terroir. Thomas Duclos is consultant here as of the 2019 vintage. A yield of 44hl/ha. Drinking Window 2028 – 2044. – 94 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine
