The Giscours 2000 has a lifted nose with blackberry, espresso, graphite, cedar and melted tar, very well defined and with growing all the time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, masculine once again, blackberry, graphite, tobacco, dried herbs, a sense of symmetry on the tannic, slightly aloof finish, but you cannot help admiring this. Wonderful Margaux from Giscours. Drink 2015-2040.

Full-bodied with big velvety tannins and a long finish of licorice berry and currants. Giscours is doing something special. Best ever from here. Best after 2010. 27500 cases made. (JS)

This is very perfumed, with mushrooms, berries, and even strawberries. Full and round on the palate with soft tannins and lovely sweet finish. This is very long and balanced, but still needs time. Just starting to open up... This is very perfumed, with mushrooms, berries, and even strawberries. Full and round on the palate with soft tannins and lovely sweet finish. This is very long and balanced, but still needs time. Just starting to open up now, but give it a couple of years. Pull the cork in 2012.

Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet, shoe polish, tar and smoke. Sweet, ripe and luscious, with earthy underbrush and blackberry flavors lingering impressively on the aftertaste. A very fleshy, ripe Giscours that remains precise and light on its feet thanks to harmonious acidity. Lovely wine. - Ian D'Agata

Probably the finest Giscours made since the 1975 this black/purple-colored 2000 offers up terrific notes of camphor creosote blackberry and cassis jam intermixed with notions of smoke and earth. Spicy with low acidity a big rich fleshy full-bodied palate outstanding texture and a long pure finish it is to reiterate one of the best Giscours produced over the last 25 years. A sleeper of the vintage it is still available for a realistic price.</P>

This is a big powerful firm wine with a top layer of ripe glamorous fruit flavors. Blackcurrant jelly fruits are shot through with ripe acidity and soft tannins...
