Chateau Giscours 2017
This is a classic Margaux vineyard that is under Dutch ownership and management – along with sister property Chateau du Tertre. The 95 hectares of vines are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Giscours offers pretty plum preserves, warm cassis and wilted roses scents with fragrant earth and cinnamon stick hints. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and plush with lovely expressiveness and a bit of spice on the finish.
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Region: Margaux, Bordeaux, France
