Critic reviews
"The 2019 Giscours has turned out very well in bottle, wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet berries, cherries, burning embers, lilac and violets framed by a discreet patina of new oak. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's polished and perfumed, with a velvety, seamless profile and bright animating acids, concluding with a long, resonant finish. Alexandre Van Beek and his team are taking this estate to heights it hasn't hit since the 1970s, and this is another of the great bargains of the 2019 en primeur campaign."
William Kelley, April 2022

"The 2019 Giscours has a well-defined, quite tertiary nose, very precise and minerally, detailed and effortless. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, fresh on the entry, quite edgy with a lively, almost citrus-fresh finish that urges you to take another sip. Maybe not the substance for long-term cellaring, but delicious. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting."
Neal Martin, February 2023

"The 2019 Giscours is every bit as compelling today as it was from barrel. Dark and sumptuous in feel, Giscours shows off its notable dimension and breadth. Succulent black cherry, plum, leather, tobacco, menthol and licorice intensify as this gorgeous, beautifully layered Margaux builds with time in the glass. The 2019 is a big wine, but not quite as exuberant as the 2018. Tasted two times"
Antonio Galloni, February 2022

"Another reminder of just how balanced and delicious the 2019 vintage is in Bordeaux. Hits the graphite, slate and raspberry leaf notes that bring you firmly into Cabernet Sauvignon territory, with its dark but bright cassis and blackberry fruits, with savoury sage and spiced clove on the finish. Lorenzo Pasquini technical director, first vintage with Thomas Duclos as consultant, harvest September 11 to October 12, 44hl/ha yield, 50% new oak for ageing."
Jane Anson, February 2024
