Description

The freshness and refinement of a Margaux Grand Cru Classé

The estate  

Located on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Giscours is a historic property in the Margaux appellation, with vines first planted in the 16th century. This superb Margaux 3rd Cru Classé is a true flagship of the Bordeaux region, with its distinctive neoclassical palace architecture, its park of rare species and its buildings, including the beautiful "Ferme Suzanne." Since 1995, Château Giscours has entered a new era in its history following its acquisition by the Albada Jelgersma family.

The vineyard

The Château Giscours vineyard covers 95 hectares of vines in production, out of a total of 300 hectares. A real jewel in the crown of the Margaux appellation, the special feature of the Château Giscours terroir lies in the presence of 3 deep Garonne gravel hilltops, which play a decisive role in the grapes' ripening cycle.

The vineyard

The harvest was à la carte, perfect in length, and was completed after a month of continuous picking. The result in the vats at Giscours: superb! In September and October, the generous daily sunshine, combined with the cool nights, created the temperature range needed to refine the tannins and for the phenolic concentration in the grapes.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (70%)
Merlot (25%)
Petit Verdot (5%)
