2010: It is a little unsettling to realize that 2009 and 2010 may be the greatest back to back Bordeaux vintages produced in the history of the region. The over-achieving Giscours has turned in a great performance in 2010... 2010: It is a little unsettling to realize that 2009 and 2010 may be the greatest back to back Bordeaux vintages produced in the history of the region. The over-achieving Giscours has turned in a great performance in 2010 which possesses an opaque purple color as well as notes of licorice black truffles sweet blackberry and cassis fruit flowers and soil undertones. It is very full-bodied and exceptionally opulent fat and round but the vintage's acids precision high glycerin alcohol and extract are all present. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years.

This is very structured and muscular with a lots of toasty new wood showing now but if you dig deep you see a rich and beautiful fruit and velvety tannin structure. Is this the new 1970? Very sexy.

Polished with lots of alluring mocha and licorice notes leading the way followed by creamy blueberry blackberry and black cherry fruit. The finish is long and creamy. -J.M.

Tasted twice at the chateau and the UGC a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon (the highest ever) and 29% Merlot that cropped at 25-27hl/ha. It has a pH of 3.6 and 13.7% alcohol. I must say I really love the purity on this... Tasted twice at the chateau and the UGC a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon (the highest ever) and 29% Merlot that cropped at 25-27hl/ha. It has a pH of 3.6 and 13.7% alcohol. I must say I really love the purity on this nose as dark cherries cassis and crushed flower soar from the glass. Very fine delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied with very silky smooth tannins almost Burgundian in texture. Lovely poise and focus long in the mouth this is the finest Giscours in a long time.

60% cabernet sauvignon 32% merlot 5% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. Aged 15-17 months in approx 50% new oak. This high-toned effort boasts perfumed aromas of red and black currant followed by cacao and cherry cola... 60% cabernet sauvignon 32% merlot 5% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. Aged 15-17 months in approx 50% new oak. This high-toned effort boasts perfumed aromas of red and black currant followed by cacao and cherry cola and a hint of rose petal. Sleek and slender this wine offers great acid and minerality. Great balance. This will drink well for well 2-3 decades.
