TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Château Giscours 1978 has a dark carmine
  • Nose: The nose is very expressive with layers of fruit, spice and cedar. Definitely a girly wine style but with red berries, cedar and a surprising vitality,
  • Mouth: Full bodied and complex. Blackcurrants, good firm tannins. This wine combines elegance with power and finesse.

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.
