A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by juicy black cherry and black currant fruit notes, a velvety texture and a supple-styled Margaux that consumers will enjoy. It is not a big, powerful, concentrated wine, but it is well-balanced and cleanly as well as correctly executed. This is a stylish, sensual Margaux to drink over the next 10-12 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Giscours 2011 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The nose is fleshy and ripe with lifted strawberry and raspberry aromas, the oak present but well integrated. It has a pleasing purity for the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, sensual mouthfeel. I feels just a tad worked in the winery, but I still appreciate the balance and soft silky tannins towards the finish. Very fine. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This is very precise and pure with very fine tannins and a lovely currant and light citrus undertone. Balanced and very pretty. Long finish. jamessuckling.com

This has nice ripeness, with cassis and blackberry paste flavors allied to sweet tobacco and roasted spice. Has a plump, weighty feel, but good focus, too. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Deepest crimson. Fragrant with cherries and a hint of violets. Rich and soft and very rounded but perhaps a little short on acidity, surprisingly. Easy going, lacks a bit of edge and energy. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

Fine blackcurrant Cabernet fruit, good structure and aromas that flow through to the palate, an elegantly expressive wine. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com

Blending 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the wine reached 13.2% alcohol. With flowers, spice, black cherry, cassis and coffee, this medium-bodied wine is round and fresh with ripe black cherry. theWineCellarInsider.com

Lovely perfume with lifted aromatics and wonderful velvety tannins. A fantastic wine with great consistency and quality - surprising that this vintage is nearly as good as the previous two vintages given the tougher weather conditions. A generous red with supple, firm tannins and sweet, plummy flavours on the mid palate. The second sample was less good but assume that the better sample represents the real Giscours. AsianPalate.com

One of the major successes in Margaux 2011 Giscours is rich and polished with a fine grain of tannin acting as a scaffold to the juicy mid-palate. A wine with a real perception of energy.
