Deep purple in colour with violet edging, this is beating fast with juicy bramble fruit and life. You can feel the texture of the berries in the mouth, making this a luxurious, confident Giscours, with swirls of smoke backed up by spice. There's an effortless quality to the tannins, but this is definitely built to last. It easily stands up to the 2015 and 2016. Drinking Window 2027 - 2042. Barrel Sample: 95

He continues to lavish the care and attention that are necessary to maintain Giscours' standing as a world-famous great growth.
