Ch. Giscours (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. I have always thought that this was one of the finest wines that has come from Giscours in recent years. Here, the 2010 has a well-defined, quite intense bouquet with dried violet petals infusing the precocious black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and very structured, but it certainly has the weight of fruit to support it. The finish is opaque and dense, a great wine built for the long-term. Tasted January 2014.
