Yes I said 1995. 1995 was by all accounts a very good year in Bordeaux, most high 90’s rated. This wine usually scored in mid 90’s from most raters.
Ch. Giscours is a third growth, but don’t tell it that. It has been producing fine wines forever, rivaling the seconds and firsts in the past 20 vintages.
The nose exhibits aromas showing off ripe fruits, raspberry, blackberry, dark cherry, with notes of oak.
The juice shoots volumes in your mouth. Big juicy notes that make the eyes bulge. So many layers, definitely structure and complexity. Full bodied cannot even begin to describe. The tannins are huge. Let this one breathe please. This is not a stand alone. Protein is needed in some form to go with this. Have a big steak and enjoy the evening.
