Château Giscours 2011, 3ème Cru Classé, Margaux, Bordeaux, France

£67.00 per bottle

All prices include VAT

Château Giscours is one of the largest Margaux properties and now producing wine worthy of its 3ème Cru Classé status. It is located in the commune of Labarde and has over 80 hectares of vineyards.

Giscours was in a dire state when it was acquired by Nicholas Tari in 1952. He invested heavily and the quality of the wine improved beyond recognition. In 1995 he sold up the property to Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma.

The 2011 Château Giscours is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, picked between September 8th and October 1st. It offers more fruit intensity than the 2012 with more Margaux florality displayed. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins, red cherry and raspberry fruit combined with cedar and tobacco notes. A full bodied and delicious Margaux, perfect for special occassions and it ready to drink now, but can also be cellared for another 6-8 years.
