Tasted at the Château Giscours vertical, the 2010 Château Giscours is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot picked between September 27 and October 14. I contrasted this directly against the superb 2009, but I still maintain that this has the upper hand, albeit in a different style. The aromatics are very focused with black fruit, violets, fig and mineral scents that are very well defined. But you need patience - this is not as immediate as the previous vintage. The palate delivers, delivers and delivers brilliant delineation and poise, more freshness than it knows what to do with, an intensity that is supremely well focused and length in the mouth. There is even a dab of mint chocolate making a surprise appearance on the aftertaste. This is a very impressive Giscours. Tasted June 2015.

This Third Grand Cru Classé occupies an area of 80ha in the village of Labarde, southern part of the Margaux appellation. Giscours wines are often very concentrated, muscular and solidly structured. The abundant tannins allow it to go through the years easily, even in difficult vintages. This Château de Margaux is definitely a guarantee of timeless quality.
