1989 Giscours

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



The 1989 Giscours is the first reassuringly fine wine made at this property since the 1983. It exhibits a black/ruby color, and a big, forceful bouquet of overripe plums and licorice. In the mouth, the wine has the tell-tale succulent character of the vintage, a chewy texture, excellent concentration, high alcohol, low acidity, and a long, opulent finish. It should prove seductive and heady to nearly everyone. Anticipated maturity: Now-2008. After some so-so efforts, it is nice to see this property rebound with two fine efforts in 1989 and 1990. Wine Advocate.February, 1993



This smells of Port and raisin, with tanned leather as well. Totally decadent. Full-bodied, offering wonderful fruit and a blockbuster palate of chewy rich tannins. What outrageous opulence and wonder. Shows so much fruit, with mature and aged character, with a soft, yet chewy palate. An old style of great wine. This may end up being the new legendary 1970. Just coming around, a beautiful surprise. '89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now.-James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010
