First references to Giscours making wine was in 1552. Its long history involved two Americans that bought the property after the French Revolution. Through a few more changes of ownership in the 18th century, a famous vineyard manager Pierre Skawinski led the wine towards viticulture innovation. At Giscours, a new type of plow was invented, in addition to the creation of gravity cellars. All revolutionary during that time.

Wine Notes:

"Concentrated autumnal fruit offers a hawthorny bramble of blackberry and bilberry. Big-framed, muscular tannins are joined by plenty of acidity - it's very clearly built to last and confident in its ability to reward those with patience. Matured in 50% new oak." Decanter

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Giscours gives up aromas of cassis, chocolate, earth, tar, pepper and hoisin with touches of flowers and a meaty nuance. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a great core and a long finish." Wine Advocate
