2018 Giscours, Margaux 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1419427 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Black currant, dried-blueberry, oyster-shell, black-olive, black truffle, and bitter-chocolate aromas. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Savory and mineral layers interplay with the black fruit. Powerful and chewy yet very polished and beautiful. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a powerful wine with a great future that displays a rich, juicy blackberry flavor and ripe tannins. It is well-structured and generous in fruit, yet well balanced and shows promise for the future. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very expressive, with violet and lilac notes followed by creamed plum and mulled blackberry and black currant fruit flavors. Subtle anise, juniper and sanguine notes thread the very long finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Brushed damson, fine but firm tannins, lots of dark deep fruits and powerful oak that slightly detracts from appellation typicity. This is confident and good-quality but needs a lot of time in bottle. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Matured in 50% new French oak, it has an attractive bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, rose petals and touches of orange peel. The medium-bodied palate is quite cohesive and refined, with fine tannins and notes of white pepper sprinkled over the red fruit. This is a classic Giscours and, with 13.8% alcohol at the moment, the DNA of the château really comes through. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Giscours delivers expressive notions of baked raspberries, Black Forest cake and sautéed herbs with a core of crème de cassis, pencil lead, fertile loam and fallen leaves. Full-bodied, taut and muscular in the mouth with earth-laced baked black fruits, it has a firm, chewy texture and refreshing herbal sparks on the finish. (LPB) 90-92+ Inner quote mark (4/2019)
