56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot. Cask sample. Deep crimson hue. Reined-in and reserved at present but leans towards a dark-fruit expression. Mouth-filling fruit on the palate with just a touch of sweetness and fine-grained tannins that support and build behind. Supple texture, good persistence and freshness all the way through. Potential.

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, the 2020 Giscours reveals a deep garnet-purple color and compelling notes of crushed redcurrants, plum preserves and Morello cherries, leading to hints of lavender, wild sage, damp soil and black truffles with a touch of licorice. The medium-bodied palate bursts with vibrant red and black fruits and lots of savory accents, supported by soft, very well managed tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - 05/05/2021
The 2020 Giscours has a fresh and vibrant bouquet with blackberry, blueberry, crushed violet and iris flower scents. As I remarked from barrel, there is a conspicuous gap between the Grand Vin and Deuxième Vin this year. The palate is smooth on the entry, quite sapid with hints of black olive infusing the black fruit. Harmonious, the 50% new oak neatly folded in, especially on the seductive finish. Interestingly, a decanted bottle had a bit more austerity on the finish than the one just poured. - Neal Martin - 02/08/2023
