A bold, powerful wine, the 2014 Giscours hits the palate with exotic spices, herbs, tobacco, smoke and game. Broad swaths of tannin give the wine its distinctive broad-shouldered personality. Iron, white pepper, herbs and smoke give the Giscours much of its trademark ferrous/savory personality. There is no shortage of intensity, although some slightly rough, angular contours remain

The Château Giscours 2014 is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 20% Merlot picked between 22 September until 16 October. Alexandre Van Beek told me that the Merlot didn’t really contribute to the blend. The nose is reticent at first with scents of black fruits, a touch of graphite and a subtle marine influence, detailed though not intense. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, the acidity pointed and noticeable from start to finish. There is plenty of freshness here (acidity 3.4 pH) very linear with fine tension, probably an earlier drinking Giscours since there is not the weight of the fantail of flavours on the finish. It just needs more horsepower. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

Very pretty cabernet sauvignon character. Full body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Ultra fine tannins. Tight and caressing. Refined. This is a little more cabernet in the blend that gives detail and direction.

Fresh, with pretty cherry and plum fruit, lined with a light red licorice thread and backed by violet and iron notes on the finish. Not that dense but has good range and definition.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
