The finest Giscours in my professional career (I said the same thing from barrel), this dense purple wine has a stunning nose of burning embers, charcoal, creme de cassis, new saddle leather and damp, forest floor notes. It is full-bodied, with excep... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Giscours 6000ml

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.

Subtle and pretty on the nose, with blueberry, blackberry and hints of flowers. Full and very fine, showing a beautiful texture of polished tannins. Wonderfully long and balanced. 53 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 7 percent Cabernet Franc, and the rest ... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Giscours 1500ml

This has an old-school twinge, with bay leaf and alder notes leading the way for cassis bush, blackberry and tobacco flavors. Theres lightly edgy grip, but this doesnt really have the stuffing to go long-term. Best from 2013 through 2019. -JM Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
