    Another very dark crimson. Light nose with some putty and a hint of herbaceousness. Round, obviously very carefully worked. Not quite the stuffing of its stablemate du Tertre. Rather austere finish. Though it is certainly refreshing! Just that very slightly green note.?

    Good dark red. Blackberry, licorice, leather, chocolate and a whiff of peat on the nose. Intensely flavored, fine-grained and lively, with noteworthy energy to its dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. A firmly built wine in a rather cool style for the year, finishing with chocolatey tannins, a lightly herbal quality and very good length. Very well done.

    The finest Giscours in my professional career (I said the same thing from barrel), this dense purple wine has a stunning nose of burning embers, charcoal, creme de cassis, new saddle leather and damp, forest floor notes. It is full-bodied, with exceptionally sweet, well-integrated tannins and a multi-dimensional, almost skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. With its low acidity and remarkable substance and depth, this gorgeous wine should age beautifully for 20-30 years.

    This is alluring, with lots of incense, warm espresso and roasted mesquite notes leading the way for a sleek core of mouthwatering black currant and blackberry fruit. The long finish lets the mesquite edge linger, with well-embedded grip. Rock-solid. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

    http://www.cellartracker.com/list.asp?Table=Notes&iUserOverride=0&szSearch=giscours+2009 Spicy blackberry, tobacco, crŠme de cassis, blueberry, earth and toasty oak aromas are the perfect introduction to this suave, rich, ripe Margaux. Fresh, round and soft, this ends with layers of sweet blackberry and cassis. As this wine develops, it could increase in score

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.
