Critic reviews
"The finest Giscours in my professional career (I said the same thing from barrel), this dense purple wine has a stunning nose of burning embers, charcoal, creme de cassis, new saddle leather and damp, forest floor notes. It is full-bodied, with exceptionally sweet, well-integrated tannins and a multi-dimensional, almost skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. With its low acidity and remarkable substance and depth, this gorgeous wine should age beautifully for 20-30 years."
Robert Parker, December 2011

"The rich texture is clear visually with its inky plum colour, and this has plenty of ripe damson and black cherry fruit on the attack. Bitter chocolate and smoked turmeric adds opulence, although the tannins remain tight and this is a little abrupt on the finish. Less suave than many 2009s right now, although clear underlying power. First year with Denis Dubourdieu as consultant, 50% new oak for ageing. Harvest September 22 to October 13."
Jane Anson, February 2024
