Château Giscours 2017 Margaux 3e Grand Cru Classé


Wine Advocate
Score: 90-92

Blended of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Giscours is scented of crushed black currants, blackberry tart and black raspberries with touches of Indian spices, Sichuan pepper and violets plus a waft of chocolate box. Medium-bodied with wonderful freshness defining the palate and elevating the red and black fruits, it finishes with a nice ripe, grainy texture paving the way.
In 2017, the lower parts of Giscours were hit by frost. Consequently, yields are down by about 40%. Harvest was a relatively long one here - starting on September 14 (Merlot) and finishing on October 5 (last of the Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon). The final blend was made in early March.

Vinous | Neil Martin

90-92 :
The 2017 Giscours, picked 15 September to 5 October, is matured in 50% new oak with around 5 or 6% of vin de presse. It has a perfumed bouquet with black fruit, a touch of oyster shell and iris, very pure and quite sensual in style. It does not make an immediate impact but rather grows on you. The palate is medium-bodied, the mouthfeel supple, smooth and harmonious with fine-grain tannin, perhaps just missing a little structure towards the conservative, straight-laced finish. That suggests it will be an approachable Giscours compared to the 2015 and 2016, but one with breeding and class.
