Aged in high quality oak barrels, the wine acquires its complexity over a period of months, subtly combining aromas of dark fruit and spices with the tannins in the wood, to reach a sublime balance. The complex blending procedure, an important state in the production of this great wine, requires the most advanced skills of the cellars master and their team. Ultimately, all the traditional qualities of a great Margaux are assembled: the finesse of the tannis, purity, a gentle, refined elegance, and a great length on the palate.
Given a 95 point rating from The Wine Enthusiast, "Giscours shows and initial character of great style and elegance. The shining fruit and concetrated tannis follow, making it both a seductive wine and one with a long-term future."
The Chateau Giscours 2010 is available, along with many other fine selections, in our temperature controlled wine room.
