Château Giscours Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2009
We normally find tasting Giscours at this stage a tad underwhelming to be<br/>honest, tending to buy large quantities (far more expensively I may add) when<br/>it's singing, four to six years after the vintage. Not this year!!!<br/>It's fabulous and definitely in my top 10 (affordable) wines of the<br/>vintage. Really generous without being pushed, intense and concentrated with an<br/>amazingly long finish, this could easily be their greatest vintage, and it<br/>actually surpasses the brilliant 2005. Fantastic.

Editorial Reviews for Château Giscours Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
Sweet roasted red peppers, dried tomato, spice, cigarbox nose, sweetly vegetal – soft and creamy entry, rich and almost mouthfilling, no detail, flavors are vegetal, sweet and indistinct, finishes hard and dry (83-84)
Leichte Säure, schön weich, leicht holzig, schon jetzt ziemlich elegant. Ab in den Einkaufskorb!
Animal and red fruit nose. Extremely complex with forest floor, sweat, red and black fruit (plums and currants). Extremely concentrated. Good finish on tannins. Delicious
95 pts. -Wine Spectator Grand Tour 5/5/12
Barnyard funk on the nose. Violets and earthy red fruit. Very nice. Noble feel on the palate. Wonderfully smooth and layered. Lingers nicely. - WS Grand Tour 2011

External Reviews for Château Giscours Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
The Giscours 2011 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The nose is fleshy and ripe with lifted strawberry and raspberry aromas, the oak present but well integrated. It has a pleasing purity for the vintage. The palate... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Giscours 6000ml

This has nice ripeness, with cassis and blackberry paste flavors allied to sweet tobacco and roasted spice. Has a plump, weighty feel, but good focus, too.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Giscours 6000ml
I thought this could be even more spectacular than it is, given the way the 2010 from Giscours performed from the barrel, but it is certainly outstanding. A beautiful wine, stunningly opulent, accessible and almost atypically forward, it is plump and delicious already, and in that sense, it is almost reminiscent of the 2009. Deep ruby/plum/purple, with juicy black raspberry and black currant fruit as well as hints of cedar, licorice, forest floor and underbrush, the 2010 is medium to full-bodied, layered, round and impossible to resist already. It should drink beautifully for 20–25 years.
Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry and licorice pastille on the nose. Then sweet, juicy and energetic in the mouth, with complex flavors of plum, currant, cedar, tobacco and spices along with a gamey nuance. Firmly built but not hard. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and a note of licorice. Still a bit strict today, this wine has the structure to repay aging.
Features a lightly firm, singed alder frame around a core of dark plum, cherry and cassis bush notes. Taut tar and warm paving stone notes fill in on the finish. Shows serious, well-embedded grip, and the core of fruit is spot on. This has the range, length and cut for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2030.
This is very structured and muscular with a lots of toasty new wood showing now but if you dig deep you see a rich and beautiful fruit and velvety tannin structure. Is this the new 1970? Very sexy. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Giscours 6000ml
