Chateau Giscours 2018

60 units available online.
Product description

This Classified Growth in 1855 is the first label of Château Giscours. It is one of great finesse. Delicacy and power are combined in this flask to bring you the elegance expected of a great Margaux wine. The aging potential of this great wine is between 8 and 20 years or even more for the most exceptional vintages.

97 Points - James Suckling

Black currant, dried-blueberry, oyster-shell, black-olive, black truffle, and bitter-chocolate aromas. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Savoury and mineral layers interplay with the black fruit. Powerful and chewy yet very polished and beautiful. Try from 2024.

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Always a significant wine, this latest release with powerful while also stylish black fruits fits into a well-regarded tradition. The density and broad fruitiness of the wine make fine foils for each other. It is firmly structured and set for aging. Drink this wine from 2027.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

Very expressive, with violet and lilac notes followed by creamed plum and mulled blackberry and black currant fruit flavours. Subtle anise, juniper and sanguine notes thread the very long finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2024 through 2036.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2018 Giscours opens with fragrant notions of kirsch, black cherry compote and blackcurrant pastilles with suggestions of dried lavender, cinnamon stick and mossy tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers a good amount of red and black fruit flavours with compelling purity, framed by soft tannins and well-balanced freshness, finishing with a spicy lift.
