Sublime vintage of the 3rd Classified Growth of Margaux which in 2016 is a real gem.
The very dark robe, almost ink and indicates a great density of the wine. The nose is perfectly balanced between aromas of black fruits and vanilla notes. On the palate, the wines are incredibly precise with a beautiful tannic structure and an impressive balance. The vintage is a real gem.
12bouteilles tips : Structured by Cabernet and balanced by Merlot it is a very great Margaux to have in your cellar!
J. Suckling : 95-96/100 "The black color indicates a solid and structured red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Full-bodied and very tight and tensioned. Savory tannins that are powerful and intense at the finish. Classically structured. Finely toned and formed young red. "
Wine Advocate : 93/100
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Giscours gives up aromas of cassis, chocolate, earth, tar, pepper and hoisin with touches of flowers and a meaty nuance. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a great core and a long finish."
Wine Spectator : 92/100 "A very solid wine, with a dense core of steeped plum and blackberry puree flavors, liberally infused with black tea, alder and sanguine accents. The long finish unfurls nicely, revealing depth and a caressing feel. "
