The new 2016 vintage is due to be launched shortly. Please find tasting notes and review about the previous vintage, below. The wine will be dispatched from Wednesday 28th July.

"Petite Sirène 2016 from Château Giscours has just been released and it has now arrived in our UK bonded warehouse. When I first tasted it I was pleasantly overwhelmed. I thought the 2015 was a great affordable claret and it is – but the 2016 is a step up with rich, ripe merlot fruit, a hint of spices and tobacco giving wonderful depth of flavour. 

A triumph for a claret at this price. Full marks to Eric Albada Jelgersma and his wine making team at Château Giscours."

How does the wine taste?
A merlot-based blend with a rich, round body full of clean, lively and ripe cherry and blackcurrants. On the finish, the wine lingers, with a tinge of spice and very well balanced tannins. Delicious. ABV: 13%

What do the critics say?
"From a corking vintage, its effectively the 3rd wine of Château Giscours (the much-loved Third Growth from Margaux) made by the same winemaking team. A blend of 70 per cent Merlot and 30 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, its richly flavoured and succulent with red and dark berry fruit, whispers of vanilla and spice and a long, mouth-filling finish. Its an extremely approachable entry level claret with impeccable pedigree and reassuringly accessible price. In short, it's perfect."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator

Thoroughly enjoyed this wine, especially with roast meat dishes. A good price for a drinkable Bordeaux

Giscours little mermaid punches well above her weight. Its hard to find a rival Bordeaux at this price.

I struggle to find enjoyable Bordeaux at a sensible price but this is brilliant. I have a few bottles of Giscours 2000 which I eek out on special occasions. Never knew they did a 3rd wine and will make this my everyday Bordeaux.
