Château Giscours 2000

£60

“Probably the finest Giscours made since the 1975…”according to Robert Parker

Château Giscours 2000 is dark and concentrated, with intense aromas of tobacco, coffee and blackberries and jammy notes.  Spicy, with low acidity, full-bodied with soft, velvety tannins. A lovely mouthfeel and a long, pure smoky finish.

It is drinking well now but can evolve further over the next 5- 10 years

We have just 24 bottles remaining which are perfectly stored in their original wooden cases. Available for inspection at our East Surrey wine store. Duty and VAT paid stock
