Giscours festigt durch eine tolle Serie seit 2015 seinen Ruf als bester Deal unter den Crus Classés von Margaux. 2019 und 2020 sind die bisherigen Höhepunkte seit dem großen 1970er. Für den Giscours-typischen Trinkfluss sorgt 2020 ein Merlot-Anteil von 50 Prozent, der die präsenten Tannine des Cabernet harmonisch einbindet.
James Suckling: "Aromas of crushed berries, dried flowers and spices with undertones of ink and iron. Full-bodied with wonderful, fine tannins that are totally embedded in the structure. Endless length and such refinement. Rather ethereal. Another winner from Giscours." (96-97)
Jane Anson: "This is an excellent Giscours, extremely precise, well drawn and seductive. There is both concentration and spice, and a vivid sappy feel to the raspberry and bilberry fruits, all drawn out through the palate as the slate texture kicks in. Plenty of things to keep track on here, not least that this is now the only estate in Margaux owned by the Albada family, as they have sold du Tertre. The focus is now entirely on Giscours, and I would expect to see a concerted effort to raise the visibility of the property. Changes include Thomas Duclos as consultant since 2019, and vineyard choices such as intra-plot harvesting, meaning going in waves through the plots picking individual vines when they are at full ripeness. Plus, Jerome Poisson is the new technical director (a French Canadian, who worked in Napa, Italy, Chile, Cognac and Alsace), replacing Lorenzo Pasquini. 50% new oak for ageing. A yield of 35hl/ha."
