This is a classic Margaux (3rd Growth 1855) 95 hectare vineyard.
The 2023 is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.

The 2023 Giscours is the very best wine I have ever tasted here. Giscours has been knocking on the door of Bordeaux's elite for a few years now. Two thousand twenty-three is the year in which Giscours joins the region's big boys and girls. A towering, majestic Margaux, the 2023 dazzles from start to finish. What a wine! 
96-98 Antonio Galloni.

The 2023 Giscours is one of the real successes of the vintage, unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cherries and red fruits mingled with hints of undergrowth, violets and liquorice. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it's seamless and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit framed by ripe, powdery tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a long, broad finish.
94-96 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

This really expands in the mouth, with tight tannins that are polished and velvety. The fruit shows depth and purity. Medium to full body. Juicy centre-palate. Like the ripe fruit in the centre palate. The quality of the tannins in this rises to a new level. The tannins pull you through the wine.
96-97 James Suckling.

Inky, expertly constructed, fleshy blackberry, pomegranate and cassis fruits, black pepper, sage, rosemary and smoked cumin spice, with lift, nuance and momentum through the palate, clearly an excellent vintage at Giscours, although relatively low 31hl/ha yields.
95 Jane Anson
