Château Giscours

Tasting notes
  • 90 Points - The Wine Advocate

    "The plump, rich and densely purple-colored 2012 Giscours, has turned out very well in this vintage, offering loads of fruit. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it has a moderate finish, and is medium to full-bodied, with excellent licorice and crème de cassis notes, and a broad, round, juicy mouthfeel. This is a wine that can be drunk young or cellared for 12-15 years. Drink: 2015 - 2030.” - Robert Parker

      Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

      In 1552, Pierre de Lhomme, a rich Bordeaux clothier bought the house of "Guyscoutz", built up a vast estate around it and planted the very first vines.

      The wine adventure was underway and the successors of our rich merchant in turn were able to add their contribution. It was in the 19th century, under the impetus of the Promis, the Pescatore and other Cruses that Giscours adorned itself in its finery: transformation of the castle into a neoclassical palace, development of a park with rare species by the landscape designer Eugène Bülher, modernization of production facilities with the construction of huge farm buildings, including the famous "Ferme Suzanne" ...

      In 1995, Eric Albada Jelgersma, a Dutch businessman, took over the operation and undertook meticulous work to restore the vineyard and renovate the buildings to restore all the nobility befitting this Third Grand Cru Classé of 1855.
