Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate

(01-1998) This wine has been fully mature for a number of years, yet it reveals no sign of drying out. The color is a deep garnet with some amber at the edge. The nose offers up roasted herbs, sweet black berry and currant fruit, along with earthy notes. This medium-bodied wine is somewhat compressed on the palate, but is true to the elegant, narrowly-built style of most 1981s. It will never resolve all of its tannin, so my advice is to drink it up. The wine has more fragrance than fruit, and appears to be increasingly spice and structural-driven as opposed to fruit-driven.

The Chateau Giscours is one of the most important areas of Medoc. The vineyard consists of a serious ground on a base gravel and sandy. The creation of a pond near the castle, helped land drainage. The terroir is exceptional, meets all the quality factors of a vintage: exposure, drainage, soil hot spring, root permeability, fertility, water regulation summer. The wines of Chateau Giscours show is focused, generous, rich in tannins. Particularly attractive in their youth, they have a potential repository of several years in great vintages.
