Tasting Notes

Château Giscours certainly boasts one of the superior aromatic profiles of the Margaux appellation with delightful red cherries and fresh strawberry fruit and an essence of mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins on the entry, although the finish kind of "stumbles" over the finish line and the oak feels just a little heavy handed. Maybe this will sort itself out by the time of bottling. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 88/90Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, April 2014

Sweet tobacco, earthiness, iron, new leather and red stone fruits are some of the notes that inform the 2013 Giscours. Medium in body, the 2013 possesses good length, even if it lacks a measure of depth. The finish is a bit compact and austere.
