An extraordinary terroir is what gives Château Giscours its whole identity and makes it one of the most famous Margaux wines in the world. For every vintage, we are committed to retaining what makes Château Giscours so wonderfully unique, powerful and full-bodied, whilst also working with the two concepts we hold very close to our hearts: beautiful aromas and refined tannins. Every year, our technical team lavishes individual care and attention on each vine and starts thinking about the Château Giscours blend from spring onwards. During the harvest, we perform a selection by age and complete multiple passes of each plot so that the grapes can be harvested when perfectly ripe. The Merlot is harvested for its roundness and gourmet style. The Cabernets provide the three dimensions of structure, freshness and density. In the winery, we have altered our approach to extraction so that we showcase the delicacy of the tannins. Maceration is designed in terms of duration, like an infusion, rather than intensity of work in the winery. Our choices are guided entirely by tasting.
This latest addition to the range already has a wonderful reputation as ‘Bordeaux’s best rosé’. Guided by the same care and attention paid to making our Grand Cru Classé Château Giscours, our teams precisely selected a plot of Cabernet Sauvignon set aside for this rosé and monitor it all year round. We harvest the Cabernet Sauvignon gently at an early stage to obtain freshness and fruity aromas. Only the first pressing juices are selected, and fermented at the proper temperature.
