Garnet-tinged ruby. Leafy underbrush scents complicate red cherry, red berry and tobacco on the captivating nose. Very sweet on entry, then seamless and rich in the middle palate, with a restrained sweetness and noteworthy precision to the flavors of red cherry, tobacco, leather, caramel and coffee. This very well-balanced wine finishes with still-chewy tannins and palate-staining intensity. Always a great Giscours, this bottle stood out in my tasting. (ID)
The 1975 Giscours is one of the outstanding successes for the vintage. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a powerful, well-balanced style. The color remains a healthy dark garnet. The wine possesses rich, concentrated fruit, full body, admirable ripeness, and an overall sense of balance despite strong tannin in the finish. This thick, rich Giscours may be the finest wine made between 1970-1994. It will continue to drink well for another 15+ years. Should readers see this wine at auction, it will probably sell for a low price. It is a classic, top-flight 1975. (RP)
