All poise and polish, this rich yet structured Margaux will prove to be very age worthy.
Margaux was one of the highlights of the 2015 vintage, the Chateau Giscours punching well above its weight. Impenetrable inky black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Refined aromatics of blackcurrant and mulberry with violet overtones flow through the nostrils. Cedary tobacco characters, subtle earth, black olive and spice notes ensue. Beautifully defined in its structure the palate is decorated with rich blackcurrant and mulberry fruit that has notable elegance and finesse. Adding complexity are cedary tobacco characters, subtle scorched earth, black olives and spice. Very polished yet sturdy tannins work in perfect harmony with the fruit. Excellent depth with a long elegant aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years.
Plenty of violets and dark berries on offer here. This has a striking sense of purity as well as an energetic, regal palate. The structure is impressively groomed with effortless depth and length. A standout wine. Try from 2022.
This firm wine shows the tannic side of the vintage. Those tannins are dusty, enriched with black-currant fruits and a dense backdrop. The wine is concentrated and elegant, very ageworthy and not likely to be ready before 2025.
The 2015 Giscours showed magnificently when I tasted it from barrel and I made allusions to the legendary 1961, which I have been fortunate to taste two or three times. I have no reason to change this view. It has a very refined bouquet that is almost understated at first, but then blossoms in the glass with copious blackberry, raspberry, flint and graphite aromas. The palate is very well balanced with great depth and real vibrancy. There is a slight chalkiness to the texture, extraordinarily fresh with superb mineral tension on the long finish. This is a great Giscours that will age beautifully over many years. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2060.
Neal Martin – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Giscours is every bit as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Deep, powerful and virile in style, the 2015 has a lot to say. There is a purity to the aromas and flavors in the 2015 that I don't recall seeing in the past. Ripe and ample, with terrific freshness and nuance, the 2015 is compelling in every way. In 2015, the blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, with no Cabernet Franc. Drink 2022-2040.
