Château Giscours Margaux Grand Cru

750 ml

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 (Classified Growth in 1855)

The first label of Château Giscours attributed to great finesse and elegance. An illustrious Margaux wine where delicacy and power unite. Giscours’ history reaching back to the 14th century is rich and prestigious. In 1552 Pierre de Lhomme built a vast estate around it and planted the very first vines.

Of deep gravels from the Garonne river and sand from the ice Age, grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot are grown and cultivated to be aged in high quality French oak barrels that make room to a complexity of the blend as it progresses and reaches an epic balance described as an "intellectual" wine by some connoisseurs.
