This 3rd Growth Bordeaux has been called "an intellectual wine."
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Giscours gives up aromas of cassis, chocolate, earth, tar, pepper and hoisin with touches of flowers and a meaty nuance. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a great core and a long finish."

Château Giscours is located in Bordeaux's Medoc wine region in the commune of Margaux. It is ranked as a 3rd Growth, or Troisième Cru, in the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux. With a history going back 600 years, the château was a defensive tower that overlooked what was then the marshlands of the Médoc. It wasn't until the 16th century that it began its destiny as a wine producer. Giscours is known for producing wines of elegance and class, with some connoisseurs proclaiming it as an 'intellectual' wine.
