Sattes Purpurgranat mit schwarzer Mitte und aufhellendem Rand. Betörendes Bouquet nach frischem Früchtetee und reifen Waldhimbeeren. Im zweiten Ansatz Waldbeergelee und Rosmarin. Am kräftigen Gaumen mit engmaschigem Körper und sehr verlangenden, reifen Tanninen mit fein mürbem Extrakt sowie einer perfekt stützenden Frische. Im gebündelten langen Finale mit einer tiefschürfenden, dunklen Mineralik sowie getrockneten Wildkirschen. Das ist ganz grosses Margaux-Kino, viermal degustiert.
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.

600 years of history and commitment
Giscours has a long, rich history, which can be traced back to the fourteenth century. At that time it was a defensive tower overlooking a wild and inhospitable region. The real beginning came in 1552, when Pierre de Lhomme, a wealthy Bordeaux draper, bought a nobleman’s house called “Guyscoutz”; he proceeded to turn it into a vast estate and planted the first vines. Wine production was launched and each of the rich merchant’s successors made their own contribution to this magnificent building. It was in the nineteenth century under the promise, Pescatore and Cruse families that Giscours gained much of its finery: the château was transformed into neoclassical palace, architect Eugene Bülher and the production facilities were modernized with the construction of huge buildings, including the famous «Ferme Suzanne”.
