ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 3eme Cru Classe. The first reference to Chateau Giscours making wine dates back to 1552, it was confiscated during the French revolution and sold to two Americans. Chateau Giscours name cannot be dissociated with Pierre Skawinski having worked there for over 50 years as a manager. During his time at Giscours he came up with the idea that everything in the cellar should be moved by gravity. While most Chateaux use gravity today in their cellar, this was a revolutionary development at the time. Chateau Giscours has over 100 hectares planted in the Margaux appellation. Vinification takes place in a mixture of stainless steel vats and concrete tanks. The wine is aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE
The wines are deep, round, rich, ripe. In the left bank 2009 were stunning. Plenty of sublime wines were produced in the Medoc. Many wines from Pauillac to St Estephe are so good they are close to off the charts.
