This Classified 3rd Growth from Margaux, Chateau Giscours is produced on a 95 hectare vineyard. Giscours 2016 is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot. These grape varieties, experienced a very successful vintage with remarkable qualities.
Chateau Giscours 2016 is very dark, almost ink-like. The nose reveals concentrated aromas of black fruits, but is still quite shy. In the mouth, the wine is dense and ample, with weight from the tannins. The wine is straightforward and elegant, with contained power. A wine in the style of Cabernet Sauvignon is classy and remarkably precise.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal known for its thick, durable skin, and the vine’s resistance to the elements. After the birth of the grape, the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal began to be adopted in parts of France by winemakers searching for more durable plants that were relatively easy to grow, and the grape found its champion in the region of Bordeaux.
Merlot is a dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. Merlot grapes are identified by their loose bunches of large berries. The color has less of a blue/black hue than Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and with a thinner skin and fewer tannins per unit volume. Merlot grapes tend to have a higher sugar content and lower malic acid.
Cabernet Sauvignon is an amazing food wine. Pair with:
- Braised Beef Short Ribs
- Beef Tenderloin & Blackberry Dressing
- Grilled Steak with Salsa Verde
- Asian BBQ Lamb Ribs
- Roasted Duck Breast
