Ch. Giscours (1.5 L)
NM: Tasted ex-Chateau and single blind in Southwold. This is another Margaux 2008 that really stuck its head above others and surpasses my previous expectations. It has another very floral bouquet with violets and rose petals: good fruit intensity and judicious use of oak. The palate is medium-bodied with very good backbone, fine definition with a crisp, symmetrical finish that shows great persistency. Tasted January 2012.
