The Winery

Château Giscours

Château Giscours

The first written reference to the domain of Giscours, a deed confirming the sale of the Estate for 1,000 Pounds, dates from 1330 and refers to a fortified keep. Records of Giscours' vineyards go back to 1552. Giscour's early reputation for fine wine became increasingly apparent as time went on. A century later, Giscours charmed the palate of the "Roi Soleil" Louis the 14th, who is said to have had a particular inclination for the wine.

4 /5

The broad nose has cherry and blackcurrant with floral notes (roses and violets) and light spices. The palate is velvety, round and full of delicate fleshy fruity at its centre. The finish is stretched by a gentle freshness.

4/5

The fruit for this great red grows in vineyards located near the river Gironde in a temperate climate allowing the 40 year old vines to draw up all the finesse, complexity, and aromatic richness that characterises the great wines of the region.
With a delicious herbal taste up front and smooth tannins on the finish this elegant red has refined fruity notes and a long finish.
