One of the largest of the Margaux properties, the château owns over 80 hectares of vineyards in the commune of Labarde. The blend is based on Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and Cab Franc to finish. Blackberries, Cassis & cocoa come together with polished tannins. Decant and enjoy now or hold for another 5 years.

Located in the heart of a beautiful 300-hectare estate, the 83-hectare Giscours vineyard is situated in the famous Margaux appellation. Though the estate was first mentioned in a document dating back to 1330, it was not until 1847 that Count de Pescatore laid the cornerstone of the remarkable chateau that now overlooks the vines. Giscours' wines quality was confirmed by its inclusion as a third growth in the 1855 classification. The estate was purchased by Nicolas Tari after WW II. In 1995, the Chateau's wine growing business was acquired by Eric Albada Jelgersma. The investment he has made in less than a decade mirrors his passionate commitment to bring Giscours back to its former glory.

A deep ruby/plum/purple hue is followed by aromas of tar, licorice, black currants, and roasted herbs, sweet, sexy fruit, soft, velvety tannins, medium to full body, and impressive purity. Drink this plush Margaux over the next 15-18 years. Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Giscours 1500ml

Giscours '06 is moderatly dense with a ripe, "sweet", scented yet muted black fruit nose. The wine has a soft center and finish with moderate tannic grip. Attractive pure fruit notes rem ain. Elegant and fine. Tasted from barrel April '07. By early 2009, Giscours is open to the nose, soft, fragrant and inviting. In the mouth, the wine is textured with a soft, ample center balanced by gentle, fine tannins in a lasting finish enhanced by "sweet" fruit notes. Charming, elegant and classically Margaux. Robert Parker 88.

Bright red-ruby. Musky, moderately ripe aromas of plum, tobacco leaf and herbs. Fruity and supple but a bit simple, combining a candied quality and some green notes in the middle plate. Lacks real depth and finishes with a repeating suggestion of can... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Giscours 750ml
