Since the takeover in 1995 by the Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma, chateau Giscours has made a comeback with its fantastic terroir. The domain covers over 80 hectares of vineyard and produces a very reliable but above all classic Margaux with a lot of depth. The Sirene de Giscours is the 2nd wine and is a very interesting alternative to the first wine. The style is sweet and soft, mostly with notes of tobacco and cedar on the nose. The 2019 La Sirene de Giscours is smooth but intense on the palate with aromas of creamy berries, cherries, plums and spices. In the mouth it is a medium to full-bodied wine with rich and fleshy flavors with fine depth in the core, lively acidity and a long, penetrating finish. It consists of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon supplemented with Merlot 12%, Cabernet Franc 9%, Petit Verdot 9% - 90/100 Parker & 94/100 Suckling

TIP: there is now also a 3rd wine. The Haut Medoc de Giscours - highly recommended, especially in terms of price/quality.

Vineyard for 2019 Chateau Giscours La Sirene de Giscours

Giscours was in a dubious state when Nicolas Tari acquired it in 1954. Substantial investments followed and quality improved by leaps and bounds. In 1995 Giscours came into the possession of the Dutch grocer (supermarkets to Super de Boer and Edah) Eric Albada Jelgersma, who also invested heavily here, just like at his other Château du Tertre property and further improved the quality through a rigorous replanting and replanting program. The cellars were shed and new equipment was purchased. Today Giscours is again “the grand seigneur” it once was and worthy of a 3rd cru. With 200 ha of which 80 ha of vineyard one of the greatest assets in the Médoc.
