1970 Giscours, Margaux

SKU #950079 93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark I have probably drunk more bottles of the 1970 Giscours over the years than any other example of the vintage on the Left Bank, and the wine never fails to disappoint. This hails from the era when Giscours was one of the very finest wines in the Médoc, offering a typically black fruity, slightly meaty and smoky example of Margaux, and this is certainly the personality of the outstanding 1970. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of sweet blackberries, cassis, cigar smoke, gravelly soil tones, a touch of meatiness and a topnote of violet. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely plush on the attack, with a fine core of black fruit, good soil signature and grip, still a touch of backend tannin and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. Fine juice. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very deep blackish ruby. Very rich and sweet - quite different in style from the ethereal Lafite 1973 tasted immediately before it. Full and rich and sweet. Dense and deep. Lush and luscious. Much more generous than most 1970s. Very clean, fresh finish. Big and burly. Very distinctive, if not exactly subtle. The 1970 Giscours was always a very successful wine, made in the Pierre Tari era. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2010)
