Our last shipment of this superb wine from Château Giscours in Margaux sold out almost immediately but luckily a new shipment has just arrived for all our customers who were disappointed when we ran out of stock. It was, with good reason, one of our best-selling clarets in 2021. I remember when I first tasted it I was very pleasantly overwhelmed - and I still am. A step up even from the lovely 2015 with rich, ripe merlot fruit, a hint of spices and tobacco giving wonderful depth of flavour.

A real triumph for a claret at this price. Full marks to the winemaking team at Château Giscours who have made this wine in the mould of their grand vin.

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.

Really good value Bordeaux. Recommended.

Its great and really good value wine although I am not sure i agree that it is better than the 2015 but still a really easy drinking smooth calret

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.

"Made by the winemaking team at Margaux third growth, Château Giscours, this appellation Bordeaux red is 70% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Now with five years under its belt, there's a gentle pink rim to the ruby colour and very attractive aromas of spiced plum compote, with some classy cedar and a depth of fruit. A very pleasing wine in the mouth too, lots of juicy plum and black cherry, firm tannins and keen cherry-skin acidity give enough bite and structure, against the suppleness of the fruit."
Tom cannavan, Wine-Pages.com
"We've offered the previous vintage of the 2016 Petite Sirène before and sold out our allocation each time. And little wonder, for it's fantastic value for what is the third wine of Château Giscours, the fabled 3ième Cru of Margaux (and home, incidentally, to the Bordeaux Giscours Cricket Club). With hints of roses on the nose and dark, rounded spicy fruit on the palate, it makes a very easygoing lunch wine."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
