Giscours 2018


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 97.0

Located in the Margaux appellation of the Bordeaux region, Château Giscours is a Troisième Grand Cru Classé. The component of its terroir, a mild climate and barrel ageing hold the secrets of this fine wine. Cabernet Sauvignon represents 60% of the vineyard and Merlot 32%, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc compose the remaining 8%. The Château Giscours is an elegant, well-structured wine with bright aromas and luscious, silky tannins. To the Château, wine does not stand alone, but is a representation of its environment. Benefitting from Margaux’s excellent terroir, Château Giscours vineyard’s sit above dry, gravelly hilltops. In turn, this well-balanced, rich wine, is one that will develop beautifully for years to come.

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby. Toasty nose but there is rich plummy fruit that is fresh and vibrant woven into the notes of cedar and clove. This shines through with more authority on the palate, red cherry and plum with moreish, lively acidity and crunchy tannins. Lifted through to the finish. (TP)

Lots of ripe black cherry and cassis fruits as well as graphite, lead pencil, and scorched earth notes emerge from the 2018 Château Giscours, a medium-bodied Margaux that has a fresh, focused texture, plenty of underlying structure, and the purity of fruit thats the hallmark of the vintage. This beautiful Margaux builds nicely with time in the glass, and while it plays in the more elegant side of the spectrum, it has terrific mid-palate depth, stunning balance, and outstanding length. I think the 2019 might ultimately surpass it, but its certainly in the same ballpark as the 2016. Give bottles 3-5 years and enjoy over the following 20 years or more.
