Special notes

Château Giscours is a domain with just over 300 hectares but """only"""" 83 hectares are devoted to vines. Some 30,000 cases a year leave this magnificent """"Belle Epoque"""" style castle. One of the pecularities of the place is an artificial lake of 8 hectares that was specially dug to create a micro-climate. The wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot.
