  • Robert Parker, 1998, Score: 87

    This wine has held up nicely despite having been fully mature for well over 15 years. The color has lightened into a medium dusty ruby, but the rich, full, earthy, superripe, curranty bouquet is still lively and penetrating. In the mouth, the wine has the foursquare, beefy, chunky character that often characterizes Giscours, a certain tarry, slightly oxidized character, but finishes with plenty of richness and a heady alcohol content. This wine requires immediate consumption. Last tasted, 1/91. Drink 1991 and after


Château Giscours

A diamond in the rough, for many years Château Giscours was an inconsistent performer. In 1995,the estate was sold to Eric Albada Jelgersma, who purchased Château du Tertre two years later. Hisarrival has had a significant impact in terms of quality. As Robert Parker has noted in Bordeaux (2003) his 2001, 2000 and 1999 vintages are "the finest Giscours trilogy to date."



Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
