Château Giscours has always had a reputation for excellence throughout the centuries under all of its ambitious and visionary owners.  The estate was named a Third Grand Cru Classé in 1855 and has maintained its good standning ever since.  In 1995, Eric Albada Jelgersma, wine lover and art collector restructured the vineyard and renovated the winery buildings.  Today his children Dennis, Derk and Valérie now run Giscours.  

Château Giscours astonishes first by its size, then by its spectacular surroundings: a magnificent park, a lush forest, and vineyards covering a hundred hectares.  It is located in a a magical setting at the heart of Margaux.  

Tasting Notes

Château Giscours is an elegant, well-structured wine with magnificently bright aromas.  Blackberry, plum, violet, cocoa and cedar notes on the nose.  The palate is medium bodied, elegant with silky tannins and juicy dark fruit.  The wine is developing wonderfully and is drinking well.  Enjoy this special bottle with a perfectly cooked steak, rack of lamb with roast vegetables or sip it alongside a cheeseplate and let it be the star at the table.   

Method

Every year, the technical team lavishes individual care and attention on each vine and starts thinking about the Château Giscours blend from spring onwards. The grapes are harvested in multiple passes when perfectly ripe. The Merlot is harvested for its roundness and gourmet style. Cabernet Sauvignon provides the three dimensions of structure, freshness and density.  The approach in the winery is gentle in order to minimaize over-extraction and to showcase the delicacy of the tannins. Maceration is designed in terms of duration, like an infusion, rather than intensity of work in the winery.  Winemaking choices are guided entirely by tasting.
