Elaboration of Château Giscours 2008

Château Giscours 2008 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot)


  • Vista: Dark fruit slightly out of here.
  • Nose: The palate is fresh, crisp and stone extraction with a bit chewy tannins.
  • Palate: Light texture, good acid, giving this fresh and defined style. There is a long, juicy finish and undoubtedly force. This could be a good reason.

GRAPES: 4% Cabernet Franc, 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot

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.

Voor een speciale vis deze Chateau Giscours 3Eme Cru Classe gaat goed. De 2008 dronk ik het met collega's.
Donker rood. Aroma's van gedroogde vruchten. Zeer lichte smaak.

4 /5

Cor de vinho novo, vermelho violáceo. Aromas sensuais de cerejas. Não sei se este 2008 era vinho ou água : )
A combinação entre este Chateau Giscours 3Eme Cru Classe e a carne não me pareceu adequada.
O vinho preferido dos meus pais.

Den Chateau Giscours 3Eme Cru Classe 2008 habe ich hier gekauft und ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen.
Ein bordeauxroter . Tabakaromen dominieren. Ich würde sagen, ein Bordeaux mit reichlich Körper.
