Chateau Giscours 2008
Dark plum/garnet, this elegant, medium to full-bodied, beguiling, seductive 2008 is a sleeper of the vintage. Round and silky-smooth with lovely black cherry and black currant fruit imbued with touches of smoke, herbs and earth, this relatively evolved effort is best consumed over the next 15-17 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
This has a solid core of dark plum and mulled black currant fruit, with sleek minerality and a dash of espresso on the finish. A touch firm, but has more flesh than most of its peers in this vintage.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
