Almost black in colour. An intense blackberry bouquet, raspberries, chocolate and tobacco with floral notes. A generous body with good density, distinguished by its elegance, supported by sweet, ripe tannins. A fresh, lengthy finish. The best Giscours in years.

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.
