Grape Varieties: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc

Is the second red wine of Château Giscours grand cru classified since 1855. Château Giscours is a renowned wine-growing estate in the Médoc. These gravelly slopes play a crucial role in the good ripeness of the grapes because they have the advantage of capturing the sun`s rays.

Ageing: Has been aged in oak barrels in order to acquire all the complexity of the great wines of the Margaux appellation.

Tasting Notes: To the eye, this red wine has a beautiful purple colour before revealing notes of kirsch tea and rosehip on the nose. Topped with a touch of red plum, the aromas of this Bordeaux wine invite you to taste it. On the palate, cloves predominate. The tannins are fine and one finds all the purity and elegance of a good Margaux.

The Grape
Cab.Sauvignon Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon lends itself particularly well in blends with Merlot. This is actually the archetypal Bordeaux blend, though in different proportions in the sub-regions and sometimes topped up with Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.

In the Médoc and Graves the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend can range from 95% to as low as 40%. It is particularly suited to the dry, warm, free- draining, gravel-rich soils and is responsible for the redolent cassis characteristics as well as the depth of colour, tannic structure and pronounced acidity of Médoc wines. However 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines can be slightly hollow-tasting in the middle palate and Merlot with its generous, fleshy fruit flavours acts as a perfect foil by filling in this cavity.

In St-Emilion and Pomerol, the blends are Merlot dominated as Cabernet Sauvignon can struggle to ripen there - when it is included, it adds structure and body to the wine. Sassicaia is the most famous Bordeaux blend in Italy and has spawned many imitations, whereby the blend is now firmly established in the New World and particularly in California and Australia.
