A jewel of a wine, with fruity and oaky nuances, to be aged in your cellar. More info
This Haut-Médoc cuvée from the famed Château Giscours is the product of manual harvests, vinification in thermoregulated stainless steel vats and a year’s ageing in French oak barrels. Distinguished for its carmine red robe, it delivers a bouquet exuding red fruit with nuanced woody notes. Long and dense in the mouth with bold tannins. Great ageing potential and perfect for pairing alongside rich meat dishes or chocolate desserts.
Château Giscours is one of the largest properties in the Médoc. The vineyard's soil consists of gravel on sandy-gravelly subsoil. The creation of a lake near the château has improved the soil's drainage. The exceptional terroir benefits from all of the factors necessary for the production of high quality wines: good orientation, very warm soil in the spring, root permeability, fertility, and regulation of the water supply in the summer. After family and financial difficulties, the property was taken over by Dutch businessman Eric Albada-Jelgersma in 1995. Since then, under the management of the enthusiast Alexander Van Beek, who has accomplished huge work both in the vines and cellar, the château has been brought back to former glory.
