Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 JS / 94 DE / 93 VM / 91 WS / 90 WA / 89-91 JD

Subtle aromas of ripe fruit with plums and hints of clove and stone. Complex. Medium to full body with a fine line of tannins running through the mid-palate. Fresh and creamy texture. A blend of 71% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot and 5% petit verdot. Drink after 2021. - James Suckling

Soft and a touch earth on the attack but pulls itself together to show firmly in-control tannins. There is a natural austerity offset by a clear punch of redcurrant, raspberry and autumnal fruits. Good freshness, softened by smoked cedar on the finish. Reminds me of an early stage 2011, and this wine in 2017 seems set to age just as gracefully in the end. - Jane Anson, Decanter

The 2017 Giscours is the result of an especially stringent selection, the most dramatic at the property going back to 1995. Medium in body, with terrific freshness and energy, the 2017 shows very well today. Dark red cherry, red plum, spice, licorice, tobacco and savory herbs all grace the glassy, understated Giscours. I can't wait to see how the 2017 ages given its vibrancy and terrific sense of harmony. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

A savory edge leads the way here, featuring a mix of red and black cherry fruit infused with black tea and juniper notes. The silky finish lets everything linger easily in unison. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 17,500 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Giscours offers pretty plum preserves, warm cassis and wilted roses scents with fragrant earth and cinnamon stick hints. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and plush with lovely expressiveness and a bit of spice on the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

An up and coming Margaux estate, the 2017 Château Giscours offers a complex bouquet of sandalwood, damp flowers, sous bois, and spicy red fruits. It’s slightly stretched and firm on the palate, with medium-bodied richness. I’d like to see more fat and texture here, but I suspect it will put on more weight with time in barrel and bottle. It should drink nicely for a decade. - Jeb Dunnuck
