Sipping Fine Wine
Located on a 300 hectare estate, the Giscours vineyard is located in the famous Margaux AOC and eventually included as a Third Growth in the 1855 classification. The young palate on this blend of 70% Cab Sauv, 25% Merlot & 5% Petit Verdot, note older vintages were 50/50 Cab/Merlot. Aromas of ripe berry fruits with subtle toasty oak notes. The tannins are smooth but needs development. The long complex finish shows potential over the next decade. Great now but wait and you will be rewarded.
Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami. All wines from the 2016 Vintage. Tasting pour, no formal notes taken. Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together. Many will likely improve a few points with time. One of the more structured of the Margaux wines tasted. Should come together nicely with some time.
