Petite Sirène de Château Giscours Bordeaux 2016
"Weve offered the previous vintage of the 2016 Petite Sirène before and sold out our allocation each time. And little wonder, for its 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
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 the Jelgersma family and their 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.
