Château Giscours Bottle 2005
External Reviews for Château Giscours Bottle
Pleasant and fruity, with a nice complement of new wood, but diluted on the finish. Drink now.
A very refined red. One of the best Giscours in years. Wonderful aromas of crushed raspberries, blackberries and other fruits. Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2001.
Aromas of blackberry, black olives and licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Refined and nicely done. Best after 2010.
This sexy, broad effort exhibits medium to full body, sweet tannin, an inky ruby color, and notes of smoked herbs intermixed with charcoal, black cherries, and a hint of tobacco. The wine is round, seductive, yet surprisingly concentrated and luscious. Give it 1ndash;2 years of cellaring as the tannins are slightly more noticeable than in the 2003, and drink it over the following 12ndash;15 years.
Good ruby-red. Lovely lift to the aromas of black fruits, licorice and minerals. Pure, intense and sweet, offering an enticing combination of black fruit, mineral and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes long and sweet, with plenty of tannic structure and a lingering note of bitter chocolate. A juicy, serious wine with some power. This has turned out very well.
Good full red. Roasted fruits, leather and a whiff of game on the nose. Fat and powerful, with impressive material and volume for this Margaux. Seems rather heavily extracted, but the winersquo;s sweetness is impressive. The young 2005 is finer, though.
