Château Giscours, Margaux BordeauxChâteau Giscours
The first mention made of Château Giscours dates back to around 1330 when it was referred to as a fortified dungeon. In 1552, the estate was sold for 1,000 pounds and was already recognized as a vineyard at this time. Reference is made in the Féret, considered as the bible of Bordeaux wines, of Giscours being served to Louis XIV who, it was said, appreciated the wine. In 1789, the estate belonged to the Saint-Simon family, from whom it was confiscated in order to become “National Property”. Numerous owners then followed. As with many other Bordeaux chateaux, the estate was confiscated with the Revolution in 1789, coming into the hands of the local citizens as National Property. There then followed a string of new owners, the most notable being Count de Pescatore who was responsible, in 1847, for the construction of the chateau which still stands at Giscours today. A classified growth since 1855, Château Giscours expresses the finesse and elegance of its terroir. Ever since 1552, the property has been recognized as a wine estate. At that time, its wine was already being appreciated at the French royal court. In 1847, the Count of Pescatore rebuilt the château. After a succession of owners, the property was taken over in 1948 by Nicolas Tari. In 1995, Eric Albada Jelgersma purchased the Château Giscours business and increased investment to optimize quality.

Chateau GiscoursChâteau Giscours 2003, Margaux, Bordeaux
This is a great success for Giscours, and a continuation of the extraordinary work being done by Eric Albada Jelgensma who has been resurrecting this famous estate to the glory it enjoyed in the sixties and seventies. A powerful, broadly textured offering, the 2003 exhibits an inky ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet nose of camphor, melted licorice, smoke, black cherries and cassis. It is dense, powerful, yet at the same time harmonious, elegant, and pure, with wonderful sweetness and a voluptuous mid-palate and finish. "Aromas of blackberry, black olives and licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Refined and nicely done. Best after 2010." - Rated 91, Wine Spectator.

The Château GISCOURS vineyard covers four outcrops or croupes : four outstanding terroirs, made up of coarse and medium coarse gravel over steep, well-drained slopes. This abundance of pebbles (40 to 50 %), creating poor, permeable conditions in the soil, contributes hugely to the high quality of the wines. This gravel is mixed in the subsoil with coarse sand, which helps the vine to develop a deep rooting system. With the the temperate Médoc climate, conditions are thus perfect for the creation of a great wine. The harvest is picked by hand and sorted, crushed and pressed as is common in most Bordeaux Châteaux, however Château Giscours has not been averse to using modern technology to improve the grapes. It was an early proponent of reverse-osmosis to remove excess water from the berries and has also employed the unorthodox procedure of heating the grapes to 60° in order to ameliorate the extraction of color and tannins.
