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

Melhor comprar na Uvinum.
Cor-de-cereja intenso, de opacidade média. Cheira bem, como a framboesa. Algum sabor a amora no tinto.

3 /5

Rouge très foncé et plutôt opaque. Arômes de violettes. J'en ai bu un peu, et au fil des jours il a tourné au vignaigre.
Il n'était pas adapté au menu aussi varié que nons avons mangé.
J'ai conseillé ce Giscours 1996 au près d'une amie.

3 /5

Mes amis ont adoré ce Château Giscours Rouge. Rouge cerise. Arômes de compote de fruits rouges. Il avait seulement le goût de raisin.
Idéal avec un gigot d'agneau.

Un rouge de Margaux que je recommande.
