Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot; 29.9 g/l dry extract;13.2% alcohol): Medium deep ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis, sassafras, camphor and quinine on the nose. Sweet dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors show an almost liqueur-like creaminess, but bright acidity keeps this fresh midweight light on its feet. Finishes silky, balsamic and long, with tar, pepper and mineral notes providing grip.

Beautiful ruby red, nose of blackberries, chocolate, fresh wild flowers, country air and candy - an absolutely beautiful ever changing nose, with a nice mouthfeel well integrated tannins and a 45+ second finish.

About This Producer


Located in the commune of Margaux, this chateau is ranked as a Third Growth property from the 1855 Classification of Medoc. Just before that classification, a wealthy Parisian, the Count de Pescatore, renovated this estate, and is given credit for bringing the wines back to a superior quality. After World War II, Nicolas Tari took over the estate, making some serious renovations that included replanting the vineyards and constructing a man-made lake that would later contribute to the terroir of the wines. Today the vineyard makeup is very typical of most fine Medoc estates - Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (42%) and the remaining, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc (5%). A quarter of the plot is considered old vine, with 40-year-old vines. The estate's second wine is called La Sirene de Giscours and outside the commune's border, the estate makes a bottling called Le Haut Medoc de Giscours.
