Petite Sirène de Château Giscours Bordeaux 2016
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.

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
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.
