Dating back to the early 1300s Chateau Giscours has weathered the changing face of Bordeaux for over seven centuries, always seeming one step ahead of the trends. The smooth silky Giscours style is enhanced by the recent addition of optical sorting of their fruit to use only the grapes at optimum ripeness. 
 “A very solid wine, with a dense core of steeped plum and blackberry puree flavors, liberally infused with black tea, alder and sanguine accents. The long finish unfurls nicely, revealing depth and a caressing feel.” – WS 
If you want the approachable, pure Bordeaux that can tuck you in at night, then this is the wine to buy. Bedtime story not included.

James Suckling

The black color indicates a solid and structured red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Full-bodied and very tight and tensioned. Savory tannins that are powerful and intense at the finish. Classically structured. Finely toned and formed young red.

Wine Enthusiast

Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine with a great future that displays a rich, juicy blackberry flavor and ripe tannins. It is well-structured and generous in fruit, yet well balanced and shows promise for the future.

Vinous

The 2018 Giscours is another in a series of brilliant wines from the estate. Bold and explosive in the glass, with tremendous fruit richness, the 2018 has so much to offer. In 2018, Giscours is radiant, exotically ripe and incredibly inviting, with a relatively high percentage of Merlot that adds juiciness. All the elements are in gorgeous harmony. The 2018 is an especially fine Giscours. It is certainly the best recent vintage I have tasted. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. Tasted two times.
