Château Giscours

The Château Giscours combines all the titles of nobility proper to the greatest wines of Margaux. The first written mention of Giscours refers to a fortified keep around 1330, but its history did not really begin until 1552, when Pierre de Lhomme, a wealthy draper from Bordeaux, acquired Domaine and planted the first vines. 

In 1847, Château was built in the Renaissance style as we know it today, then gradually its famous park was developed and production tools were modernized.

At the famous 1855 wine classification, Château Giscours was named Third Grand Cru Classé. 

Taken over in 1995 by the Jelgersma family, meticulous work was carried out in the vineyard and winery to restore the property's reputation. Today, the vineyard comprises 100 hectares of vines: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 15 to 17 months in 50% new French oak barrels. 

The estate produces a Second wine, La Sirène de Giscours, as well as a third wine classified as Haut-Médoc, the Haut-Médoc de Giscours.

The wines of Château Giscours are synonymous with refinement and aromatic richness, carried on the fruit and apt to wait for long ageing.

Description Château Giscours 2022.

Comment from Château:

"The 2022 vintage is clearly an out-of-the-ordinary vintage.

It's a historic climatic year where it was exceptionally hot and Sec from spring and throughout the summer.

Thanks to the diversity of our terroirs, the age of our vines and the efforts of our teams, our vines showed great resilience and offered us fruit of the highest quality.

In the vineyard as in the cellar, delicate and meticulous work was necessary to harmoniously reveal all the richness of Château Giscours 2022.

The 2022 vintage is the symbol of tailor-made work and great precision.

This Château Giscours has astonishing freshness with ample, fine tannins that carry it through to a long finish.

This is an outstanding vintage!"
