Giscours is a major player in Bordeaux, certainly the most famous property on the famed Labarde plateau; it is also the first significant member of the 1855 classification that you meet when driving up the D2 artery through the Médoc. The entire estate covers almost 300 hectares, of which 80 hectares are under vine comprised of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc and 3.5% Petit Verdot. The terroir has long been admired and the late great Bordeaux professor and winemaker Denis Dubourdieu once opined that “Chateau Giscours has one of the most homogeneous terroir/soil in the Médoc area.” Consistency is its watchword, therefore

Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92+

Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Giscours delivers expressive notions of baked raspberries, Black Forest cake and sautéed herbs with a core of crème de cassis, pencil lead, fertile loam and fallen leaves. Full-bodied, taut and muscular in the mouth with earth-laced baked black fruits, it has a firm, chewy texture and refreshing herbal sparks on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, April 2019, The Wine Advocate

96-97

James Suckling

The black color indicates a solid and structured red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Full-bodied and very tight and tensioned. Savory tannins that are powerful and intense at the finish. Classically structured. Finely toned and formed young red. - jamessuckling.com, April 2019

Jancis Robinson

Inky core. Dark and introverted but beckons you in to find out more. Soberly seductive. A dark, savoury charm, a smooth but compact texture. Gravelly like its site. Not obvious and in your face, but refined in its power. Opens up to dark perfume. Most elegant vintage of Giscours I have tasted.Julia Harding, jancisrobinson.com, April 2019

93-96

Antonio Galloni

The 2018 Giscours is another in a series of brilliant wines from the estate. Bold and explosive in the glass, with tremendous fruit richness, the 2018 has so much to offer. In 2018, Giscours is radiant, exotically ripe and incredibly inviting, with a relatively high percentage of Merlot that adds juiciness. All the elements are in gorgeous harmony. The 2018 is an especially fine Giscours. It is certainly the best recent vintage I have tasted. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. Tasted two times. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, May 2019

Decanter

Deep purple in colour with violet edging, this is beating fast with juicy bramble fruit and life. You can feel the texture of the berries in the mouth, making this a luxurious, confident Giscours, with swirls of smoke backed up by spice. There's an effortless quality to the tannins, but this is definitely built to last. It easily stands up to the 2015 and 2016. Harvest lasted for a full month, from 12 September to 12 October. Aged in 50% new oak. - www.decanter.com, Jane Anson, March 2019
