FREE shipping. Grand Cru Classe in 1855. Château Giscours is a 3ème Grand Cru Classé estate situated in Margaux that has seen significant advances in quality and consistency under the direction of Alexander van Beek, with the 2000 vintage marking a particular turning point. It is a wonderfully refined and elegant blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, that offers up charming notes of cassis, mulberry, cedar, tobacco, woodsmoke and earth.
Probably the finest Giscours made since the 1975, this black/purple-colored 2000 offers up terrific notes of camphor, creosote, blackberry, and cassis jam intermixed with notions of smoke and earth. Spicy, with low acidity, a big, rich, fleshy, full-bodied palate, outstanding texture, and a long, pure finish, it is, to reiterate, one of the best Giscours produced over the last 25 years. A sleeper of the vintage, it is still available for a realistic price. Robert Parker
