No other estate embodies the ups and downs of a Bordeaux Chateau quite like Giscours. Over the six centuries of its existence, through scandals and financial tribulations at the hands of many proprietors, Chateau Giscours has gone from grandeur to ruins and back again. Today, against all odds, it is in peak form - a point on which Bordeaux commentators all agree (which is a miracle in itself !).
For the Sirene de Giscours the estate uses the youngest Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vines from 87 Ha of vineyards in Margaux. The resulting wines are matured for 12 months in medium toast French oak. In 2009 Giscours has produced a head turning Sirene, making it a vintage hit of the Margaux appellation. The cuvee consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot with the balance being made up of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Opaque black dark red colour with dark crimson red hue. On the nose blackcurrant and violet top notes are followed by some cedar, mulberry, tobacco and spice. Medium to full bodied the palate delivers good richness with flavours of blackcurrant intermixed with mulberry and a touch of liquorice followed by some cedary cigar box and spice. Dryish but very fine grained supportive tannin structure. Long spicy blackcurrant and cedary cigar box aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years (2021-2023).
