The 2017 Giscours is the result of an especially stringent selection, the most dramatic at the property going back to 1995. Medium in body, with terrific freshness and energy, the 2017 shows very well today. Dark red cherry, red plum, spice, licorice, tobacco and savory herbs all grace the glassy, understated Giscours. I can't wait to see how the 2017 ages given its vibrancy and terrific sense of harmony. (93) ANTONIO GALLONI

The 2017 Giscours has an open and expressive bouquet with crushed strawberry and raspberry fruit, melted tar, tobacco and light floral tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins and well judged acidity. This is a classically styled Giscours, off-dry, a little reserved at first with a moderate spiciness coming through on the finish. It feels pinched at the moment and requires four to six years in bottle. (91) NEAL MARTIN

Subtle aromas of ripe fruit with plums and hints of clove and stone. Complex. Medium to full body with a fine line of tannins running through the mid-palate. Fresh and creamy texture. A blend of 71% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot and 5% petit verdot. Drink after 2021. (94) JAMES SUCKLING
