Chateau Giscours 2011

Château Giscours is a well-regarded wine estate in the Margaux appellation of the Haut-Médoc region just north of Bordeaux city. It was rated as a third growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification and, since the 1990s, it has moved from being a Merlot-dominant wine to a more long-lived blend, typically of 75 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 25 percent Merlot.

Grape Varietals: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot

Wine Region: Margaux, Bordeaux, France

Tasting Note: The wine is only just coming out of its shell. The nose is subdued but fresh and incisive, the palate firm verging on austere with grippy tannins present. There's length and freshness, the Cabernet providing a linear edge, the fruit adequately juicy. If you can, wait another couple of years. Drink 2021 - 2035

Food Pairing: Smoky truffle risotto
