Tasting Notes

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "his chateau gets better and better. The wine has power, but it is harnessed by the intense fruits, the blackberry flavors, the density and the wood. With the power, though, comes elegance, resulting in a wine that is ready to develop over many years." (06/08) 93 points Wine Spectator and listed in the Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008! From the Spectator: "Displays blackberry, cherry and hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very pretty and solid. This is structured and chewy. Needs time. Best after 2013." (03/08) 91 points Robert Parker: "This forward-styled 2005 possesses a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a big, sweet bouquet of roasted herbs, fudge, espresso, figs, and cherry jam. Opulent, even decadent, with low acidity, but high glycerin and fruit extract as well as a flamboyant fleshiness, this is a stunningly impressive, hedonistic, savory Margaux to enjoy between 2010-2025." (04/08) 91 points Stephen Tanzer. K&L's barrel tasting notes - Vibrant, deep purple. Tastes great at Joanne. Big wine and finely balanced. Tasted three times. This could be a super winner. Has balance and great structure. Ralph says: Upfront dark fruit of blackberry jam and spice lead to a good sweet middle, a serious skeleton of structure, and a long finish. This is very regal, serious wine. ** (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer) Giscours is back and still affordable!
