2010 Giscours, Margaux

SKU #1146795 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Whereas 2005 has the power, 2010 has power and elegance combined. The nose has a dark fruit, floral and mint complexity, the palate a firmness but finesse of tannin and plenty of fruit, zest and freshness. The energy is apparent, the finish long and clean. It's a wine that should age gracefully over a long period of time. The 'as good as it gets' pick. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of mint and currants with hints of fresh herbs. Then turns to plum jam. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and pretty fruit. Long and caressing. This is really outstanding. Inner quote mark (11/2013)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Giscours shows an initial character of great style and elegance. The shining fruit and concentrated tannins follow, making it both a seductive wine and one with a long-term future. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features a lightly firm, singed alder frame around a core of dark plum, cherry and cassis bush notes. Taut tar and warm paving stone notes fill in on the finish. Shows serious, well-embedded grip, and the core of fruit is spot on. This has the range, length and cut for the cellar. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Giscours slips seductively out of the glass with notions of baked black cherries, mulberries and plum preserves plus hints of cassis, pencil lead and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is toting a fair amount of oak with a sturdy frame of chewy tannins, coming through with a long, fruity finish. (LPB) 92+ Inner quote mark (3/2020)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry and licorice pastille on the nose. Then sweet, juicy and energetic in the mouth, with complex flavors of plum, currant, cedar, tobacco and spices along with a gamey nuance. Firmly built but not hard. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and a note of licorice. Still a bit strict today, this wine has the structure to repay aging. 90(+?) points. Inner quote mark (7/2013)
