    Critical Acclaim:

    Subtle and pretty on the nose, with blueberry, blackberry and hints of flowers. Full and very fine, showing a beautiful texture of polished tannins. Wonderfully long and balanced. 53 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 7 percent Cabernet Franc, and the rest is Merlot. —J.S.

    Wine Spectator

    Dark and structured, this is a firm wine. It has a smoky wood character, with powerful tannins set over intensely ripe fruit. Acidity and sweetness balance to give a dense wine, powered with richness and destined to age for many years.

    This is the finest Giscours I have tasted in my professional career. Succulent and sexy with an inky/purple color, it offers sweet aromas of subtle barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberries, blueberries, and spring flowers. The tannins are remarkably sweet, substantial, and well-integrated, and the wine is full-bodied as well as voluptuously textured. It is a head-turning, exuberant, flashy effort that should drink well for 20-25 years. Bravo!

    The Wine Advocate

    Purple-ruby. Sexy oak-dominated aromas of cassis, clove, black pepper and lead pencil, plus a strong espresso component. Enters very rich and smooth, with lively acids nicely lifting the superripe black fruit flavors. The very long finish features a pleasant peppery coffee note and pliant though assertive tannins. This well-made wine, which will need time, is in a big, rich, ripe style that isn't easy to recognize blind as a Margaux.
