Elaboration of Château Giscours 2004
Château Giscours 2004 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)
- View: Has a nice scent tight nose with black fruit presented in an elegant and gritty style.
- Nose: The palate is dense and spicy, with a large number of mature tannins and good grip core.
- Palate: This beautiful style, texture consistent with structure. It is dense, a wine of substance, but it has an attractive advantage. This seems to have really fattened out since my last tasting, wine seems now at the height of the structure. A higher score is definitely deserved.
GRAPES: 4% Cabernet Franc, 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot
How to serve
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.More about the Winery
